From The Yorkshire Times.
With only 6 weeks until the historic new 12-sided pound enters circulation, the Commercial Secretary to the Treasury visits the Royal Mint.
Baroness Neville-Rolfe will pay tribute to the Royal Mint’s role as a global leader in the production of coins and medals – exporting to an average of 60 countries every year.
Commercial Secretary to the Treasury Baroness Neville Rolfe said:
“The introduction of a new pound coin, the most secure coin in the world, is a historic event. The fact this coin is made in Wales makes it even more special as it underlines the importance of the Union.
“Our message is clear: if you have a round one pound coin sitting at home or in your wallet, you need to spend it or return it to your bank before 15 October.”
