“Start checking your change now” – Which? advice for those with old £1 coins
Gareth Shaw, Which? money expert, said:
“Start checking your change now as the old-style round £1 coins will stop being legal tender this Sunday.
“Old £1 coins can still be traded in at banks, building societies and post offices after this date. Although some retailers will continue to accept old coins beyond Sunday, you don’t have to accept them as change – you can ask for a new pound coin instead.”
