NEW £1 COIN
ARE YOU READY?
The new £1 coin was introduced on 28 March 2017. The Smiths and Ferranti coin meters will need to be adjusted to accept the new coin. The good news is you don’t have to buy any new parts for the meter, uninstall it or replace it.
The new coin is only slightly bigger than the current £1 coin, so it’s just a case of slightly enlarging the coin slot. Scroll down this page to see information about our solution for Smiths and Ferranti coin meters and videos showing you the process.
If you have a Westwood Timer operating with the current £1 coin, the coin guide will require replacing please see below.
The EMLITE Coin Meter Conversion
Conversion of the Emlite coin meter to use the NEW £1 Coin
We offer two types of service to convert your coin meter*. You can either make your own arrangements to return the coin meter, or we can arrange for collection of your meter to be brought to us for conversion.
Once your meter has been converted we will return it to you. We aim to reprogram the meters within a day or two of receiving them.
* We cannot reprogram meters supplied in 2013 and early 2014 with serial numbers commencing EML13** up to EML1435, but can make arrangements for this do be done. Please contact us to discuss this.Update your Emlite Meter
