New £1 Coin Flaws

Thousands of the new £1 coins have been reported to carry major production flaws.

By now you should have ended up with a new £1 in your purse! The new twelve sided coins are totally different in shape to the previous ones and are supposedly the world's most secure.

But recently some of the coins have revealed some major production flaws including cracks, warping and some with the entire middle missing!

One recipient of one of the wacky coins said "I'd be better off using chocolate coins instead" and called her disbelief when she saw it of "how it made it out of the factory".

Her bodged quid has a gap between the inner and the outer of the coin and even clicks when pressed as if it could fall out at any moment.

These are certainly not what you expect from a coin designed to be totally secure!
