    I give them to our librarian to count - she seems to enjoy it

    Since Tesco ask that they are all unfolded in the piles, I have always assumed they use the same sort of paper counters as you find in banks...
    I've used the weighing method for the last 5 years of counting vouchers, and Tesco have never complained that there's any problems with my figures. They weigh in increments of 0.1g with an accuracy of +/- 1g which is pretty standard for digital scales that most schools are likely to have.

    Thanks all, I'll put the weighing idea forward and see what they make of it.
