It already lost it value

Why bother? Everything in the UK is paid by debit card now. While spending 3 weeks back home, I used cash once to buy a sausage and bacon butty at a biker hut.

Ironic that his face will go on the pound just as it begins its descent into valuelessness. It really is the end of an era.

Actually this is a constant fallacy made about many countries.

In 2010, UK credit card penetration (the share of the total population who use a credit card) stood at 40%. By 2015, this had risen to 50%, and by 2020, to 62%. By 2025, it is expected to reach 71%. In terms of numbers, approximately 35% of payment cards issued between 2000 and 2020 in the UK were credit cards.Aug 4, 2022

4% of the Adult population don't even have a bank account.

One can clearly know and see this by walking through any low income neighbourhood and look at all the cash advance/payday loan services.

This isn't just the UK but the USA and plenty others.

Nice looking coin, mind.

@Antiquesaving,

The credit card statistic is not so useful. In the UK, most people use debit cards. (about 1.8 debit cards per person and about 1 credit card per person)

Missed a chance to just do away with the whole Royal family with the queens death.

Not my King!

The King Charles coins looks simply beautiful, I want the 50 pence, and the commemorative 5 pound coins for my global currency collection.
