Can somebody tell me when the British one pound coin replaced the British
one pound note?

1983 was the year it was introduced.

The first pound coins were issued in 1984, and the pound note phased out of
circulation and demonetised in 1988 in England.  In Scotland, the Royal Bank of
Scotland still issues 1 notes, the only UK bank doing so.

The pound coin was issued in 1983. The Bank of England stopped issuing
one pound notes in 1984 and they disappeared from circulation pretty
soon afterwards (though if you have one you can, of course, still take
it to a branch of the Bank of England and exchange it for current
money). The Royal Bank of Scotland still issues a 1 note.
