Watch as Yasmin and Luke discuss all the latest news from the world of change collecting…
I thought it would be interesting to take a look at how the value of the £1 coin has changed since it was first introduced back in 1983.
It’s common knowledge that the cost of living increases over time; however you may be surprised when you see just how much some everyday items have increased in cost during the past 34 years…
The Round Pound has been in circulation for 34 years but sadly those days are coming to an end. At midnight on Sunday 15th October the Round Pound will be demonetised and cease to be legal tender.
So, to celebrate this icon of British history, we want to know your favourite Round Pound Memories. These memories can be anything: good, bad, funny but hopefully nostalgic. For example:
- Where did you find your first Edinburgh City?
- Did somebody lend you a Round Pound when you needed it most?
- What’s the best thing you’ve ever bought for just £1?
We’ve got 50 Gold Plated Participant’s Medals to give away to those who share the best #RoundPoundMemories.
You have until midnight on Sunday 15th October to share your #RoundPoundMemories.
You can post your memories as a comment on this blog or any of our social media channels, using the #RoundPoundMemories.
We hope you enjoy your trip down memory lane!
