The new 12-sided UK £1 coin will enter circulation in March 2017, and The Royal Mint is producing 1.5 billion of the new coins. Her Majesty’s Treasury and The Royal Mint are working with the industry to introduce the new coin in a manageable way.

All sides of the promotional merchandise industry may want to consider this change when offering products relating to the one pound coin, such as coin holders etc.

Thank you to Paul Jory at Brandz Ltd for bringing this to our attention.
