Hmmm if its like a pound coin same wight and that drop it in a vending machine and then you dont have to worry about them

if it's only a pound, it might be worth keeping hold of for the sakes of a quid. put it on ebay as rare.

yeah thanks....I've already read that....was just wondering if people would just spend it and let it back into the system or keep it out to stop it insulting someone...that article doesnt mention to do anything with such coins, just tells people they exist


Personally I would just spend it, eventually it will be taken out of circulation.

Legally, I think you're just supposed to dispose of the coin. You aren't allowed to spend it, since using counterfeit money is a criminal offence. Personally, I'd either keep it aside as a neat little novelty, and spend it on a bus at some point when I couldn't find another coin. Wheter it'd offend anyone or not, I don't know. I think it's more just a neat novelty for a string of people, 'cos I'd think it kinda interesting if I got a coin like that, and I guess that anyone interested enough to look at their coins would do too.

Ah, right. I thought she meant that the whole coin had been made by the RIRA rather than just the letters on the queen's head. It does make things interesting, though. I know it's illegal to deface money (credit to the guy that did the googling, linky), but spending defaced money, I'm stumped. I still think it'd be cool to put the coin back into circulation though for the next curious person to find it. I'd be chuffed to find a coin like that, anyway.
