The use of the “old” Round Pound will finish at Midnight on Sunday 15th October. From this date they can no longer be used to purchase goods and services, but can be exchanged at Banks.
The new multi edge pound coin will become the only legal £1 coin from the 14th October.
With more than £420m worth of old coins rattling around in coin jars, piggy banks and cars,now is the time to root down the back of the sofa, look in all your old handbags and pockets and spend before the end of Sunday or pop in to the bank on Monday.
