Coin Information:

The £1 Coin was first issued in 1983 as a replacement for the less robust £1 note - a note lasted for just 9 months on average, while a £1 coin can survive in excess of 40 years. The first £1 coin design features the Royal Coat of Arms designed by Eric Sewell, chief engraver at the Royal Mint.
