New 50p coin to be released to commemorate Brexit day

Economy & Politics | Latest News | South East

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has unveiled the government’s full plans to commemorate Brexit day on the 31st January.

The historic moment will be marked through a commemorative 50p coin, which will come into circulation on the day the UK leaves the EU.

The public will see three million of these coins enter their banks, shops and restaurants from the 31 January, with a further seven million entering circulation later this year. The Prime Minister will be one of the first to receive the new Brexit coin, which reads ‘Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations’. 13,000 people have already registered their interest in the coin with The Royal Mint.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Next Friday marks an important moment in the history of our United Kingdom. No matter how you voted in 2016, it is the time to look ahead with confidence to the global, trail-blazing country we will become over the next decade and heal past divisions. That is what I will be doing on 31 January and I urge everyone across the UK to do the same.”
