The Story of the new £1 Collector's Pack

On March 28th 2017, the £1 coin changed forever. But it wasn't the first major change to the nation's £1.

The Thrup'nny Bit was last struck in 1967 but wasn't withdrawn from circulation until decimalisation in 1971. Fondly remembered for its individuality, the coin holds the proud title of Britain’s first ever non-circular coin.

In March 2017, a brand new 12-sided £1 coin was introduced. Billed to become the most secure circulating coin in the world, the new £1 coin has been formally named ‘The Nations of the Crown 2017 UK £1. 

The Story of the £1 Collector Pack has space for you to house the new 12-sided £1 coin once you find it in your change, alongside the UK Brass 12-Sided Threepence Coin.

Order today to secure your ‘Story of the £1 Collector Pack’ for just £4.99 which includes a Brass Threepence coin from 1967.
