New UK pound coin in circulation

New 12-sided pound coins came into circulation in the UK yesterday (Tuesday).

Despite the Isle of Man not following suit and adopting the currency itself, the updated pound will be accepted as legal tender here.


Stores using devices such as self-service checkouts will have to update their systems if they want to accommodate the new coin however.

Customer Experience Manager at Tesco in Douglas, Alan Croly says they have already prepared for the change.
