UK £1 golden coin is history

 

Today is the day the familiar “sound round pound” coins of the UK are demonetised (taken out of circulation) to be replaced by a new super secure bimetallic version. The £1 coin first came into circulation in 1983, when it replaced an earlier pound note. These coins are made from copper, zinc and nickel, but before their replacement, were often counterfeited.

I managed to save one pound coin as a souvenir, which now sits in my drawer at work.
