These are the Top 10 tips to complete your £1 Coin Collection…

The Great One Pound Coin Race is well underway and lots of you have already managed to complete a full collection of £1 coins.

For those of you that haven’t don’t worry, there’s still time… but it is getting harder!

You’ve only got until 15 October to find all 24 circulating £1 coin designs so here are the Top 10 tips to complete your collection.

Since the release of the new 12-sided £1 coin last month, the new £1 has been turning up everywhere, and that means the round pounds will start to slowly disappear. That’s because the banks will stop issuing the round pounds and will start to take them out of circulation.

Lots of you have also come forward with your own tips and tricks for finding £1 coins…

    I have completed all designs in the change checker album and also have a separate £1 coin collection of each year minted except 1999, does anyone have a 1999 £1 coin for me to swap.
    Also the big question is , as there are £34’s worth of £1 coins not in the album what do you do with them in October ???? Cash them in and lose them forever or keep them as part of British monetary history ???



  2. Edward leaver on May 11, 2017 at 9:39 am

    I have Belfast & London cities spare, also three of the four floral £1’s.
    Open to all swaps to the same face value.
