The new £1 coin will be issued from March 2017. This is of major importance to everyone operating machines which take the current £1 coin as it will be demonetarized in Autumn 2017. Some suppliers associated with our industry, including Strongcoin and Essex Engineering, offer a service to convert or adapt existing coin-acceptors. NALI are currently working on advice for enabling electronic coin acceptors and this will be available to our members ahead of the introduction of the new coin. We will update this as instructions become available.
