Dig Out Your Old Pound Coins for Pangolins

When does the old pound coin expire?

From October 15th, the old ’round pound’ £1 coins will no longer be accepted as legal tender but that doesn’t mean they have no value.

What should you do with your old pound coins?

By donating your old pound coins you can help us save the pangolin – a truly unique and captivating scaled mammal.

Sadly, pangolins are the most heavily trafficked wild mammal in the world with over one million believed to have been traded illegally in the last decade.

Your #PoundsForPangolins will help make a HUGE difference to the pangolin projects that we support in Zambia and Uganda
