There’s less than a month to go before the old £1 coins will no longer be valid. So it’s time to start going through your pockets, handbags and piggy banks to search for any forgotten coins. The last date for valid use of the old £1 coin is October 15th 2017.
After that date, the coins can be taken to a bank. However, most of the high street banks have indicated that this service will only be offered to their own customers. For further details, follow this link.
