The Story Behind the Brexit Coin

The Brexit coin was created to mark the UK's withdrawal from the European Union. Over 10 million were minted by the Royal Mint with the date of 31 October 2019, which was the day planned for official withdrawal. However, by late October, minting was paused and subsequently those set of coins were recycled as the leaving date was delayed. In January 2020, a new series of 'Brexit' 50p coins were released to mark the actual withdrawal date of the UK from the EU with the triggering of Article 50 on 31 January.
