Poppy Appeal to Accept Old £1 Coins this Autumn

Still got some old £1 coins lying about? Well, unfortunately they're now no longer accepted as legal tender.

But, don't fear. The Royal British Legion has confirmed they will still accept the old coins as part of their Poppy Appeal, starting on October 26. How wholesome is that?



You can donate the coins directly to a poppy seller or stick them in the Royal British Legion tins when you see them. They'll be able to exchange the coins at a bank and put the money toward supporting former service personnel and their families.

Alternatively, if you're feeling generous, you can donate directly via the Royal British Legion's website.
