That’s right. This is going to be the last week businesses will accept the old £1 coin. So if you still have a few quids, you should spend them as soon as possible. Otherwise you may keep them as a souvenir.
Look under your sofa, open your piggy bank and search in that old box full coins and money from other countries. You may still have some pounds there!
