With the symbols of England, Scotland, Whales and Northern Ireland, a new British pound coin goes into circulation Tuesday. On the eve of the official triggering of the Brexit process, it's a sign of national unity, at a time when it's in doubt. But that's not the reason for the new Royal Mint who've declared the coin, the most secure in the world.
It's estimated that 1 in every 30 pound coins in current circulation is a fake. These ones, we're told, have a hidden security feature making it tough to counterfeit. Now 12-sided, is the first change to the shape since its introduction in 1983. The old coins will no longer be legal tender after October 15th, meaning thousands of vending machines, shopping carts or anything else with a coin slot will have six months to catch up.
