    I do have a wee piggy bank called Priscilla, she will be getting emptied as soon as they come out next month & cashed in at the bank.

    I have set myself a reminder cos otherwise I will forget.

    Wheres the best place to cash it all in once filled? Anyone have a real cheap idea? I know some supermarkets have coin sorters. But their % was quite massive last time I cashed about 200+ from some jars..

    Hi everyone

    Can you please share this blog with anyone you know who's saving 1 coins? Especially if you're doing the sealed pot challenge!

    Thank you!

    If you’ve a piggybank or coin jar, watch out – your 1 coins will soon be unspendable

    These are two challenges where 1 coins maybe being saved, that said there is not really an issue as banks will accept the old coins after October as long as you bank with them..

    I haven't shared on my own challenge (Virtual Sealed Pot) as I have already given them the heads up when I first heard of the changes.

    That said keep your nose to the grindstone for the changes to the 10 going polymer in the next few months

    If you are lucky to bank with Natwest/HSBC/Metro and your local store has a coin counter machine then use this as there is no percentage taken, which means every penny counts...

    Last time I used the coin counter in a supermarket the % cut was nearly 8%... SHOCKING!!!
