    I have completed all designs in the change checker album and also have a separate £1 coin collection of each year minted except 1999, does anyone have a 1999 £1 coin for me to swap.
    Also the big question is , as there are £34’s worth of £1 coins not in the album what do you do with them in October ???? Cash them in and lose them forever or keep them as part of British monetary history ???

  2. Edward leaver says:

    I have Belfast & London cities spare, also three of the four floral £1’s.
    Open to all swaps to the same face value.
