I overheard a conversation between two people in the market (Nottingham, England). One was holding the money, and was ansking: Do you want to flick?

I am just wondering what he could have meant by that. Any idea, somebody?

I have never heard that. Was the person holding paper money (notes) or coins? I'm just wondering, if he was holding coins, if he might have said "Do you want to flip?"

The speaker was proposing a coin flip, thus tacitly acknowledging that he did not have the funds to settle this small debt.

I am pretty sure it was flick. Yes, there were some small changes in his hand.
