They've been out for two weeks now, I pay for a fair amount of things in cash but I just keep getting old pound coins in my change. Is it just me?

I just paid for a drink with three...

I have been getting nothing but the new ones here!

Dp had 2 last week so I've seen them but not had any myself yet. I only usually use cash for parking machines and none around here are accepting them yet so I don't really want any.

Have seen one. One!

Babyroobs Mon 10-Apr-17 20:01:50

I've had a couple, they have a sort of hexagonal shape don't they? I hope they fit in shopping trolleys etc !

SquedgieBeckenheim Mon 10-Apr-17 20:01:55

I've had one.

I haven't seen one. But I live in the north of Scotland, they might take a while to work their way up here!

TeenAndTween Mon 10-Apr-17 20:02:23

I've got 3. A shop assistant more or less forced them on me!

itfcbabe Mon 10-Apr-17 20:02:25

I have a few.x

OhDearToby Mon 10-Apr-17 20:03:08

I've only seen them at work (shop). They were in an sealed bag in the safe though, not the till. The manager doesn't want us to put them in the till incase we waste them. She doesn't seem to understand that they are here to stay!

I had my first one last week

lljkk Mon 10-Apr-17 20:03:42

Got my first view of one last night... it's gone missing (darnit).
Dated 2016. WHY?

Lilyoftheforest Mon 10-Apr-17 20:04:15

I only got one because I asked for one in the post office. I have not been given any in my change yet.

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Mon 10-Apr-17 20:04:25

I've got 3 in my purse, quite like them.

WheresTheEvidence Mon 10-Apr-17 20:04:34

Just found one in my purse shock

CotswoldStrife Mon 10-Apr-17 20:04:55

Yes, but I didn't notice - DD spotted it. The edges are not what I expected not a threepenny bit

OdinsLoveChild Mon 10-Apr-17 20:05:52

I've had 1, just 1 and that was last week. Nothing since despite spending a huge number of notes to try and get my hands on some more. I wonder where they are? confused

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 10-Apr-17 20:06:07

No, was beginning to think that they must be a mythical invention.

IndianaMoleWoman Mon 10-Apr-17 20:06:18

lljkk They have to be dated to the year they were made, even if that's before they were in circulation. They needed to start making them last year to make enough.

StealingYourWiFi Mon 10-Apr-17 20:06:41

I had one last week, didn't realise I had it until I handed it over to a cashier!

kerryob Mon 10-Apr-17 20:06:48

Not myself but colleagues have had them at work

TheMasterNotMargarita Mon 10-Apr-17 20:07:23

Several.
They're a bit rounder than I expected.
