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.

A small metal file to adjust Ferranti and Smiths electric meters to accept the new £1 coin

In order to accept the new £1 coin, the coin slot on the Ferranti and Smiths coin meters need to be made very slightly larger to be able to accept it.

This hand file is the correct size to use to file out a small portion of the coin slot so the coin will fit through it.

A small filing adjustment to the coin action with a metal hand file is required on all Ferranti coin meters for the coin action to accept the new £1.00. It is a quick, simple adjustment to make; the meter does NOT need to be uninstalled to carry out the procedure.

It is possible that your Smiths coin meter will accept the new £1.00 coin without any adjustment; it will depend upon the type of coin action fitted on your meter.

If your Smiths coin meter will not accept the new £1.00 coin, the coin action requires only a small filing adjustment with a metal hand file for it to be accepted.
