NEW £1 COIN
ARE YOU READY?
The new £1 coin is being 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. Visit our website 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 contact us to discuss this on 01803 299488.
