UK Mints Forgery-Proof 1 Pound Coin

 

All forgerers out there, beware! Here come a tiny coin impossible to duplicate as it has small 'fingerprints'. The fingerprints make the currency notes or coins near-impossible to replicate in near future. To be introduced in 2017, it will be made from two metals of different colours and will contain an iSIS security feature - a revolutionary new high security coinage system.

 

A new security technology,  eralier used to make bank notes, is being embedded into coins to help eradicate forgeries of all 1 pound coins. The new 1 pound coin has been developed in Wales by the UK Royal Mint.
