The new £1 coin will be with us next month and Vending by JSR are working with Roesler Germany on the new software.
The new update should be ready within the next two weeks and ready to run out to all machine operators early March. The coin has 12 sides but is the same size and weighs the same as a Euro coin. This has caused the problem of programming the machines to accept one but not the other. The technical guys in Germany now say they have it at a 98% acceptance rate which is well within the industry standards.
More new to follow early March
