The new 12-sided £1 coin is the most innovative ever produced by The Royal Mint. A showcase for the latest technology, as well as time-honored skills honed over The Royal Mint’s 1,000-year history, it has been designed to be fit for the future, using security features that aim to safeguard our currency for years to come.
The coin’s new shape and bimetallic appearance in two different colors, alongside its other visible security elements, mean it will tackle the problems of sophisticated counterfeiting head-on. The addition of The Royal Mint’s patented High Security Feature, within the coin itself, has added to its reputation as the most secure coin in the world.
The general public was given a rare opportunity to play a part in bringing this coin into the nation’s pockets through an open design competition. David Pearce was just 15 years old when his fresh interpretation of traditional floral emblems was chosen to symbolize the United Kingdom on the most modern coin.
This is the first major change to the specification of the £1 coin since it replaced the £1 note in 1983. As we bid farewell to the last "round pound" we celebrate the end of an era and welcome its state-of-the-art successor.
