UK’s new 12-sided £1 said to be the world’s most secure coin

The UK is planning to introduce a new 12-sided £1 coin that it says will be the hardest in the world to fake. Pending approval, the dodecagon coin will replace the current circular design, and will feature a number of security measures to prevent counterfeiting. The Royal Mint, a government-owned company responsible for minting all the UK’s coins, says the new bi-metallic coin will be the first to integrate iSIS, a technology introduced last year with three layers of security.
