New £1 coin

Par KARINE JOELLE GONZATI, publié le vendredi 31 mars 2017 08:59 - Mis à jour le vendredi 31 mars 2017 08:59


The new 12-sided £1 coin will be released on 28 March.

It's the first time the pound coin has been changed in more than 30 years.

The old coin became a problem as they were easily illegally copied.  

The Royal Mint, who create the coins, said that this new coin will be "the most secure coin in the world" .


The new coin has a picture like a hologram that changes from a '£' symbol to the number '1' when the coin is seen from different angles.


The design on the 'tails' side of the coin features four emblems to represent each of the nations of the United Kingdom - the English rose, the leek for Wales, the Scottish thistle, and the shamrock for Northern Ireland - emerging from a single stem within a crown.


On 15th October, the old £1 coins (on the left)  will become worthless!
