It is being reported that some pound coins could be worth 25 times their value…

You can forget payday loans, all the extra money you need could already be in your wallet… or down the back of the sofa.

The brand new £1 coin is about to be unleashed in the UK. The new design has 12 sides and will fully replace the old style coin by 15th October. The old £1 coin was first introduced in 1983 and there were 24 designs of the coin. The final “round pound” design was produced in 2016.

After the 15th October, the old style will no longer be accepted as currency.

So while you’re busy spending all your old coins make sure you check the design, because they could be worth up to £50! According to changechecker.org there are 24 designs which are worth more than their face value – because of their “scarcity”.
