2016 Gold Proof Last Round £1. This was the last round gold proof £1 to be produced, as the new 12-sided design was introduced in 2017.
The round £1 design was introduced in 1983 and will be making way for the new 2017 twelve sided coin on 28 March 2017. This farewell coin will not enter circulation.
We received our stock of uncirculated coins on 14th June, 2016, whilst the silver versions arrived on 22nd June, 2016.
On 28 March 2017, the circulated round pound was replaced by the 12 sided £1 coin. On the 15 October the round £1 coin will cease to be legal tender. Read more about the pound coin in our blogs:
