UK 1 Pound Coin

Post by Galee » August 10, 2017, 9:43 pm

Anyone else like me and has a pocket full of soon to be illegal 1 pound coins?.

The best use I can think for them is a golf ball marker.

I'll give you my sister's address in England & you can send 'em to her. \:D/

The new ones will look like a large threepenny bit, won't they?

Yes. It's only the old round 1 pound coin being withdrawn.

UK banks will still take them, just can't use them in shops. Not sure illegal is the right word!

In Hartlepool they use them to throw at referees ... in Scunny all the local youths are collecting them for a donation to the victims of a recent slag heep avalanche on Motlash Hill ..

Didnt know it was being taken out of circulation ???

The Bart is illegal at the moment with its exchange rate.the one pound coin is just being taken out of circulation probably because of fakes.as for any northerners throwing pound coins around,I doubt it very much.more like 15 mm washers.

I think Gallee meant no longer legal currency to exchange, apparently the banks will still credit them at face value but you can't spend them . An interesting note on this change over was the Bank of England estimated there were over 5 million forgeries in circulation of the old one but the new one is harder( impossible) their words not mine, to forge.

Although it's the same size so it can still be used in vending machines etc (defeats the object a bit in my opinion), it's a different weight as we found out at the bank when Mrs N had painstakingly sorted & bagged her stash of change. The teller told us £1 old & new coins couldn't be mixed in bags
