Coin change could cause skin problems20th April 2012
Dermatologists have told the British Medical Journal over their concerns that 5p and 10p coins being introduced into circulation within the next few months could cause skin problems.
The coins are made from steel but plated in nickel, replacing the current cupro-nickel version which contains 75% copper and 25% nickel. Dermatologists fear the move could cause problems for people who have nickel allergies, including some people with eczema, though the Royal Mint said the change would not have an adverse impact.
