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.

Fatal floppy disks. It’s no surprise that these chunky plastic squares full of data and magnetic tape were superseded by the less guillotine-like USB drive and cloud software.
