As the round pound is soon to be permantely replaced with the new 12 sided pound coin we're encouraging you to donate your last remaining old style coins to charity! 

Our own charity Action for the Wild has a number of donation pots and money spinners around Colchester Zoo and it is a great way to use those loose coins to do your bit support conservation projects around the world! 

You can find out more about the work of Action for the Wild HERE.

*The round pound coin is no longer legal tender from 11.59pm on Sunday 15th October.
