    The old "round pound" coin will cease to be legal tender on Sunday 15th October, so time to check the piggies, and give the wallet-moths some freedom.

    Some shops say they will still accept old coins until the end of the month. Others have still not updated their trolleys to accept the (threepenny-bit style) new coins... that should cause a bit of trolley-rage, I'm guessing. :nod:

    We think that we've cleared all of our old ones out. But, of course, more will turn up. :D

    Still have a couple of old florins, found after they went out of circulation. :D

    None here! I hate coins at the best of times and try and avoid them at all costs. I actually use Android Pay or card almost all the time now.

    It still frustrates me when I say I'll pay by phone and its over £30 and the cashier looks at me and says 'you cant do that' - I then have to have the awkward geeky conversation explaining to them how actually you can pay up to £100 via AP as long as you authenticate it. Makes me feel like such a nerd! :lol:

    I had two left so bought a lotto ticket for this evening with them.

    Only change I use are pound coins, everything else goes into a money box and when it's built up enough into the auto pay-in machine at the bank.
