100 Days To Spend 100 Pennies.
Have you still got any old £1 coins?
Well you have just 100 days to spend them.
On 15th October the old £1 coin will cease to be legal tender.
The Royal Mint will have issued around one billion new £1 coins in circulation by the end of the month and whilst over £800 million of the old, round £1 coins have been handed in, there are still thought to be hundreds of millions of the old coin still in circulation as well as millions of fake coins.
If you have any in your pocket, purse or down the back of the settee then spend them now.
