Half joking here, but considering how many people wish Martin Lewis to be chancellor how about a petition to place him on the other side of the new £1 coin? I bet we could generate enough votes!
A new £1 coin, designed to be the "most secure in the world", is set to be introduced in 2017.

It comes amid concerns about the 30-year old coin's vulnerability to counterfeiting, with an estimated 45 million forgeries in circulation.

The new coin is based on the design of the old 3d (three penny) piece, or threepenny bit, a 12-sided coin in circulation between 1937 and 1971.

A competition will be held to decide the image on one side of the coin


perhaps he's campaigning already! Old picture I think!


Oh I remember the threepenny bit!
