What does everyone think about it? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-26632863

I like the idea, and it will be interesting to see whether it is counterfeit proof or not, but I will think that the pound coin is only worth three pence.

I like the design - it's slightly unusual.

It's the old thrupenny bit to me.

And as Margaret says, it's fitting because that's about all a pound is worth these days

It's a great idea. I wonder when the 1 and 2 p coins will go...

I like the idea but what a cost it will be to implement.All the parking meters will have to changed, shopping trolleys etc. That will be a cost to us as Councils will add the cost of changing parking meters to the Council Tax Bill and Supermarkets will have no option but to add it to the shopping bill. Deep Joy.
