There are around 500 million old-style pound coins still in circulation. Have you got any?
Make sure you check your piggy bank or down the back of the sofa, because you only have a few days until ‘round’ pounds are no longer legal tender. After 15 October this year, shops will no longer have to accept it.
If you’ve got a savings account with us, you’ll still be able to pay in your old pound coins – and we’ll even take them after the deadline. If you’ve got lots to pay in, you can help us by sorting old coins into bags of 20 at a time.
And if you’d prefer to do something else with your old pound coins, we’ll be supporting The Children in Need Round Pound Countdown. So if you’d like to donate to this great cause instead, there will be collection boxes in all of our branches until late November.
