Pound coins

Any one who swaps £1 coins over for the locals please note from the 25th October all the old style coins are obsolete.

And I'm sure the locals are now trying to change the old-style ones at an accelerated pace. Caveat emptor.

I thought in the UK you can still change them at the bank.

Is that wrong information I've got?

And it's the 15th October, not 25th as stated by OP, that the old style £1 coin ceases to be legal tender.

Sorry. Fat finger syndrome.

Yes 15th not 25th.

But most banks will still take them for a week or so.

On the same note please dont tip in pound coins, change a little money when in Egypt and tip in local currency if possible.
