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 dated 2016 but not released until 2017.

There are reports of a 'variety' where some coins have a reeded edge adjacent to the latent image and others have a plain edge.
