2016 UK Coin One Pound (£1)

2016 UK Coin One Pound (£1)

The 2016 £1 coin is the last round edition of the coin. In 2017, the pound coin will undergo a re-design, featuring many security enhancements, and will adopt a new, 12-sided shape.

These last round £1 coins will not be released into circulation, meaning it is highly unlikely that you'd find one in your change!
