Introduction of the new £1 coin - March 2017

The new £1 coin will enter circulation in March 2017. In September 2017, the existing £1 coin will be demonetised and its legal tender status will be removed.

The New £1 Update contains some key information in relation to the specification of the new £1 coin, the timeline for introduction of the new £1 coin and advice on what you and your customers should do to plan for the introduction of the new £1 coin.

The Royal Mint is assisting HM Treasury in the introduction of the new £1 coin and would be grateful if you could distribute it to any relevant customers. A detailed business education and awareness campaign is also planned for Autumn 2016.

Crane Payment Innovation - Product Consolidation

Following the purchase of MEI by the Crane Group and the formation of Crane Payment Innovations (CPI) in December 2013 the company has continued to revue its product range. As a result the company has decided to discontinue the Cashflow 95xx coin mechanism product range and the Ardac Elite note reader. Select the appropriate option for further information of the obsolescence process for the Cashflow 95xx or the Ardac Elite.

New £1 Coin - Government Consultation Response

Following a government-led consultation period towards the end of 2014, the specification of the new £1 coin has now been finalised. Details of the coin's technical specification can be found within the government's published response paper below. Samples of the new coin will be available to equipment manufaturers in the summer of this year (2015) and will be supplied for calibration purposes, to facilitate the upgrades of coin operated equipment in advance of the introduction of the new £1 coin in early 2017.

Should you have any further questions in the meantime please do not hesitate to get in touch.
