Millions of Brexit 50p coins to go into circulation across the UK on Friday

A commemorative 50p coin marking the UK’s departure from the EU has been unveiled by Chancellor Sajid Javid. 

The coins bear the inscription “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations” and the date of 31 January.

 three million Brexit coins will enter circulation around the UK from Friday, with a further seven million to be added later in the year.

Mr Javid, who is Master of the Mint, was given the first batch of coins and will present one to Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week.

Mr Javid said: “Leaving the European Union is a turning point in our history and this coin marks the beginning of this new chapter.”
