See UK’s Upcoming 12-sided £1 Coin, Said To Be “The World’s Most Secure Coin”

It’s nothing new that with the help of technology, fake money as well as coin can be made. UK is well aware of it and it seems like the country’s £1 coin could be the next target of counterfeiters. Therefore, the country is planning to bring a new £1 coin which will have 12-side. And most importantly, the 12-sided £1 coin is said to be “the world’s most secure coin.”

New 1 Pound Coin Of UK

The Royal Mint has produced a prototype of this 12-sided £1 coin which, the company claims, will be the hardest in the world to fake. The proposed new £1 coin will be roughly the same size as the current £1 coin. It will consist of multiple layers of cutting edge technology.

The new 12-sided £1 coin will have two colors and will be made with two metals. The Queen will be on the “heads” side of the coin, and there will be a public competition to decide what should appear on the “tails” side. Besides, Royal Mint will put its new iSIS (Integrated Secure Identification System) technology, which incorporates three tiers of banknote-strength security and can be authenticated via high-speed automated detection.

This new 12-sided £1 coin by the Royal Mint will be introduced in 2017. No doubt, the proposed new coin represents a great success for UK’s science and manufacturing. For more information about the coin, hit the link given below.
