Do Not be too desperate to hand in ALL your round one pound coins as:
- Not all Tesco trolleys have been converted to use the 12 sided coin
- Not all Sainsbury trolleys have been converted to use the 12 sides coin
- Many ticket machines operated by Govia Thameslink Railway, which runs Southern, Great Northern, Gatwick Express and Thameslink, are still not ready for the change.
- Transport for London said some of the ticket machines on its Overground and tram services were unlikely to be ready for the new £1 coin until the end of the year**
** There is a current consultation for Tramlink services to be transferred to contactless only
Poundland and Tesco are committed to accepting the round £1 coin until the end of October and charity collections will welcome any donations
