Just 12 days to go until the new £1 comes out. It is out on the 28 of March 2017. Everyone is waiting for this. There are a few differences between the new coin and the old coin. As we speak 1.5 billion £1 coins are being made.
Why are we replacing the old coins?
The reason the old coins are being replacing is because it is said to be that 1 in 30 coins are fake. This is the first time the £1 coins are being replaced after 1983. The new £1 coins will go for more than a pound if you get the first batch of coins that were made. So beware find the first batch and you could win a lot of money.
What does the new coin look like?
The new coin looks very cool. The old coin is circular whereas the new coin has 12 sides. The new coin is a dodecagon (a 12 sided shape) it will look much better. Do you think it is much better?
So the new £1 coin is going to come out. You will have to grab all your old coins and replace them. I hope everyone is very excited for the new coin made by The Royal Mint.
