Who's got a new £ coin?
« on: March 31, 2017, 03:11:21 PM »

I've been trying to get one since Tuesday and nobody had one.  Finally, the people at my favourite coffee shop saved two for me:



Yes, it's a miserable picture.  Sorry

The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

We still haven't seen one yet and this morning at a cafe for breakfast I noticed that the till still had a compartment full of old £1 coins.

Yesterday (Friday) we had an interesting experience. We were picking up a friend from the Sunderland Eye infirmary and parking was £2.  We put in 2 old £ coins, and it printed out the ticket, and just as we were walking away we heard it rattle so went back and found 3 old £ coins in the drawer.  Nice. We wondered if it had been modified to accept both old and new coins but the modification had not been done properly.

I got one!  Someone paid with it in the library and I almost drooled, I was so greedy to nab it.  I still can't see the hologram but I shall keep looking.

The hologram is in the little square beneath the queen's head.  Turn it side to side and you'll see the symbol.
