Need help?

It is estimated that from August 2017 there will be more new 12 sided coins in circulation than the old round £1 coin.

You need to start planning now and have appropriate processes in place to help with the repatriation of the old £1.

This switch-over makes it even more imperative for all terminals accepting coins to be made ready to receive the new 12-sided £1 coin.

If you have not placed an order to have your machines upgraded to accept the new £1 coin, please email parkeonservices-uk@bristol.parkeon.com for a quotation.

Should you wish Parkeon to deactivate the old £1 coin, this can be arranged – for a quotation please contact our service department as above.
