Spare Change

Due to the absence of a one pound note.This is due to the fact it costs more to print notes that are subject to wear and tear then it is to have much longer lasting coins. You are going to end up with a lot of coins in your pocket. They call them pounds for a reason….

I usually dispense of my change quickly either through a self service check out machine. Or I put it on my oyster card which also helps me to avoid that pesky rush hour holding up the line “Seek assistance” request from the barrier. Awkward.

You should be aware there are rules for how much change you can use as legal tender.

£5 (Crown) – for any amount

£2 – for any amount

£1 – for any amount

50p – for any amount not exceeding £10

25p (Crown) – for any amount not exceeding £10

20p – for any amount not exceeding £10

10p – for any amount not exceeding £5

5p – for any amount not exceeding £5

2p – for any amount not exceeding 20p

1p – for any amount not exceeding 20p

The Scottish one pound note is still available and legal tender.
