If there is currently a painful bulge in the pocket of your dungarees caused by a overabundance of one pound coins thanks to a low level fruit machine win, you can blame March 11th 1988. As it was on this day that we finally bade farewell to the one pound note, replacing it with the Toffo coloured coin currently giving your bumbag so much gyp. Tell kids today that there was once a one pound note and they won’t be the slightest bit interested. And who can blame them.
