Updating Your Vending Machine for the New GBP 1 Coin

The new GBP £1 coin is nearly upon us and will be released in March 2017.  It’s now time for UK vending machine operators to start thinking about updating their coin changers to avoid last minute chaos and lost revenue.

In order to support our customers in re-configuring their machines we have three options available:


Option 1:

We can visit site and reconfigure your vending machine coin mech to accept the new £1 coin. This will involve an engineer coming to site to update the coin mechanism on your machine. The cost of doing this, is £260.00 + VAT and £165.00 + VAT for any additional machines on the same site (UK mainland only).

This applies to most models of coin changers including MEI.  If you have any queries if your coin changer model is supported, please email sales@intelligentvending.co.uk for confirmation.

 

Option 2:

We can supply a brand new C2 Currenza coin mechanism (Dual MDB/Exec) which can be configured to your set up (***) and accept the new £1 coin.  The price of these units are £268.00 + VAT each plus shipping. Please see the following link to the mechanism on our website:  www.intelligentvending.co.uk/C2BLUEMDBEXEC

Please note this is a direct replacement for your existing coin changer and will require you to re-float the new coin mech once fitted as per day to day operation, and as you were trained by the engineer when your machine was delivered.

 

Option 3:

For machines where a C2 Currenza Coin Mechanism is already in use (this is a blue and grey coin changer), we can supply a HENRI service module and an unlimited use SIM level 2 with datablock GBP_0_002_F02_12 for the new £1 coin. This option is extremely economical if you have a number of machines, but it only works with C2 Currenza coin changers (N.B. it will not work for other brands of coin mechs such as MEI).

The price of this package is £165.00 + VAT plus shipping and can be found on our website using the following link: www.intelligentvending.co.uk/C2UPDATEGBP1.  Please note that this option does not include an engineer call out and will be the responsibility of the client to update their Currenza C2 coin changer in house.  However, it’s a straightforward process that literally only takes a few seconds to complete.   A crib sheet is also available on request.

The HENRI module is a useful item and can also be used for updating your coin mechanisms in the future (only an updated SIM would be required).  If you have any doubts if your machine is fitted with a C2 Currenza coin mechanism, please send a photo of your coin changer in advance of ordering so we can confirm.  N.B. We will not be responsible for returns if clients order this kit in error.

 

(***) N.B. We will require your coin values for the tubes on your current cassette, or model number (i.e. GBP1, GBP22 etc), so that we can provide you with a direct replacement.  If a none standard cassette type is required, the lead time is currently 3 weeks as your device would be made to order.
