Comments

* Diameter note: The 12 sides are slightly curved, giving a range of diameters from 23.03 to 23.43.

The 'latent image' on the obverse is like a hologram that changes from a ‘£’ symbol to the number '1' when the coin is viewed from different angles.

Launched for circulation by the Royal Mint on March 28th, 2017 as "The world's most secure coin". 500 million circulation issues were struck with a 2016 date but were not released until 2017.

A special edition 2016-dated two coin set was released to commemorate the last round pound and the new 12 sided design in a brilliant uncirculated finish. The reverse of the 12 sided £1 coin features the Royal Mint's ‘cross crosslet’ mintmark.



Reports have been received of 2017-dated coins with two different latent images, having either 24 or 20 vertical lines.
