The old £1 coins ceased to be legal tender after 15th October

In case you, your children or your grandchildren are sitting on hoards of old £1 coins that you have been stashing away in jam jars, cupboards or under the bed (literally) .... then read on ....

But before you go handing over those unloved coins, do take a closer look.
Some specific types of the old pound coin are worth a lot more than just a quid. The Edinburgh City coin, for example, is worth up to £50 if it's in excellent condition.
Perhaps you should check the kids' piggybank just one more time.

After 15th October, old £1 coins will need to be exchanged at a bank, or some charities are prepared to take them.

If you find old pounds after the deadline, don't worry – Pudsey will take them off your hands.

The Royal British Legion is running the #poppypound campaign, making old pound coins available for donation until Remembrance Sunday on 12 November.

The old coins can be taken to Legion branches in Plymouth, Southampton, Brighton, Swindon, Bristol, London, Colchester, Cardiff, Aylesbury, Derby, Birmingham, Belfast, Merseyside, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

And they'll be accepted by poppy sellers, who will be taking donations on the streets.
Claire Rowcliffe, director of fundraising at the Legion, says the charity will be "delighted to turn your out-of-date pounds into poppies".

Other charities are also running similar initiatives – these include the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity, Stratford Town Trust, Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation, and Epilepsy Action.
