More information on the new £1 coin from the Royal Mint:

The current £1 coin was first issued in 1983, it is one of the oldest British coins in circulation. Over this time is has become increasingly vulnerable to counterfeiting. Roughly one in every 30 £1 coins in circulation is now a counterfeit.

The new coin has a number of features which will make it one of the most secure coins in the world including the bi-metallic construction, 12 sided design and the inclusion of the Royal Mint’s new technology: Integrated Secure identification System for equipment with high security detection.

The new coin also pays a fitting tribute to Britain’s heritage as it is the same shape as the 12 sided threepenny bit, which was in circulation from 1937 until 1971.
