Donate your old £1 coins and support the Laing
Round pounds go out of circulation on 15 October 2017
It is estimated that there is around £1.3bn stored up in piggy banks and jars across the UK and over a third of this is likely to be made up of round pounds.
On 15 October 2017 the old £1 coin will no longer be a legal tender and is to be replaced by the new 12-sided £1 coin. The old design will no longer be accepted, so why not donate them to the Laing Art Gallery before they go out of circulation?
A few ways you can donate your old £1 coins:
- Place them into any donation box found throughout the venue - and don’t forget to gift aid your donation - for every £1 you donate online we get 25p free from Gift Aid.
- Hand them in at any till in the venue
- Cash them in at your local bank then donate the equivalent online
Raid those piggy banks, check those pockets and donate your old £1 coins today.
