  2. Yes, judged on its own merits - but not as much as the old one.

  3. No. I like it less than the old one, and think it compares poorly to coins in general.

    I wanted to bump it for further comments, now they've been in circulation for a while. We've all had plenty of chance to handle them.

    Anyway, now the novelty's worn off, it turns out I hate the things. How about everyone else?

    I like the new ones a lot more. They're much more aesthetically pleasing than the old pound coins. I'm always disappointed now when I get one of those old, boring pound coins in my change (which is actually getting pretty rare now).

    If somebody's trying to give me pounds, I've probably got different problems.

    I'm surprised!

    I don't mind them being two-tone, but they should have stuck to their guns with the twelve-sided shape. Rounding the edges - when there's so many - just makes it look like a slightly battered circle. To me, they seem a bit "messy".

    What does "pounds" entail in the US?

    New pound coin? Don't give a frog, mate. However I would also like to know if the old thread got deleted and if so why.

    Remember when Seb launched the garbage pod off into space?

    Wasn't my pound coin thread in this forum, though? The new one? I thought it was one of the "launch titles"?

    I'd definitely like to be able to remember what we lost. All the months of yoserian should not be deleted just like that.

    Now now Kry10 I tried to include you and make you one of the gang and I get this business back. What would Tex Rimmer say about this?
