Royal mint produces last batch of round pounds!

The Royal Mint has produced the final batch of round pound coins on Wednesday (16th December 2015) at it's facility in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

It is more than 30 years since the now familiar gold-coloured coins were first minted - Llantrisant in 1983.

The new-look replacement will enter into circulation in 2017 and the Royal Mint has billed the new 12-sided £1 coin as the "most secure in the world", designed to combat counterfeiting.
