Well, 1s and 2s also look like 1c and 2c
Obviously, noone does this, since the value of LVL is higher than EUR. (1LVL=1.43 EUR). I wonder about Lithuanian coins, there it might be an issue, since LITAS is like 5 times cheaper than LATS. I know my grandma was tricked once in accepting 2 lithuanian cent coin (white made of aluminium 0.0058 EUR) for 2 Lats coin (white but heavy, 2.85 EUR). 8O

here you can see the new 1£ coin, first issue on march 28th,
it seems that it will look more like our 1€ coin than the former 1£ coin.
dimensions and weight :
Diameter 23.43mm (1€ coin = 23.25mm) (former 1£ coin =22.5mm)
Thickness 2.8mm ( 1€ coin = 2.33mm) (former 1£ coin = 3.15mm)
Weight 8.75g ( 1€ coin = 7.50g) (former 1£ coin = 23g)

They were not around yet, when I was there in the beginning of February, but let's try to find some next month. When are the old coins withdrawn?

Very soon actually. According to the New Pound Coin website, "The legal tender status of the round £1 coin will be withdrawn on 15th October 2017."
