Re: This is a lovely story
Overdue, I see so many hooky £1 coins and just pass 'em along as people losing faith in the currency is a bigger problem ...
I suspect that even if every single £1 coin was a fake, the damage would be negligible compared to HMG's efforts, generally referred to as "QE". And yet, faith is not being destroyed!
(Total value of coin in circulation in the UK: a mere 4 billion quid or thereabouts. Excluding the fakes, of course. )
