Bid farewell to the last ‘round pound’ and welcome its state-of-the-art successor

Includes the first of the new £1 coins with an exclusive mint mark

In 2017 we welcome the new 12-sided £1 coin into circulation, the first major change to the £1 coin specification since it replaced £1 notes in 1983. After 33 years, featuring 24 circulating designs we finally bid farewell to the last ‘round pound’ and welcome its state-of-the-art successor. 

More than 500 million 2016-dated new 12-sided £1 coins have been struck in readiness for launch into circulation in March 2017. This set features a Brilliant Uncirculated new 2016-dated £1 coin, one of the only 2016-dated new pounds to be released as a commemorative edition. It bears a ‘cross crosslet’ mint mark, unique to the commemorative editions and not found on the 2016-dated 12-sided £1 coins in circulation.

Llantrisant Mint Mark

In 1983 a mintmark was introduced on the new one pound coin issued for the first time in that year.
On the milled edge of the coin is the Llantrisant mint mark - a cross crosslet. This is the first United Kingdom coin to be struck with this distinctive feature. The shape of the cross alluding to Llantrisant, which translated from the Welsh means "Church or Parish of the Three Saints".

The silver £1 dated 2017 has a 25k limit, which makes this 2 coin set more valuable with just 10k of the new coin dated 2016 with special mint mark.

The newly designed pound coin is quite well designed and represents an improvement on what went before. The honoring of the four nations in the one design is quite a thoughtful honor to all regions of the UK.
