Ta-dah. I finally have a new £1 coin and have to admit to being a little disappointed. Yes it's super shiny, the design is fine, the two-colour thing is great, the size and weight are as expected but I really thought its edges would be more pronounced.
A couple paid for their tea with it. It had been their first and now it's mine.
I showed it to anyone who displayed any kind of interest including a woman from London who told me there are NONE in the capital.
I had assumed they were ALL down there and we were just waiting in the countryside for them to filter out.
Yes, today I am a little obsessed.
By tomorrow I'll be fine.
