I recall reading that the £1 coins are being withdrawn from circulation and will not be accepted after a certain date. Will they still be good in September? We will be flying through Heathrow (not stopping in the U.K. onthis trip) and it occurred to me I could spent them at the airport, maybe in the duty-free shop. My husband would appreciate a bottle of gin.
Since I have not shopped in the duty-free area before, can someone explain how it works? I have the impression they seal the purchase in a bag and then deliver it to the plane---is that correct? I know we cannot open it on the plane-don't worry.
