New One Pound Coin.

#1 by Voltman , Wed Mar 19, 2014 8:08 am

We are to have a new one pound coin. I think it looks good.

I wonder if supermarket trolleys will accept it. I hope not, that will teach the supermarkets not to misuse our currency.
Not that I use a pound coin for trolleys, I always use a euro 20c coin.

If you have a large collection of old quids you may be interested in finding out which of them are fake.
