    Royal Mint takes to social to persuade public to ditch old £1 coins by deadline

    THE ROYAL MINT and HM TREASURY have taken to social media to call on people to hunt down their remaining £1 coins and spend, bank or donate them to charity before the 15 October when they are no longer legal tender.
