The Royal Mint will have three millions Brexit 50p coins ready to be released soon. The project received the proclamation from the Queen on Tuesday night, the treasury confirmed. The Brexit coins will feature the inscription: “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations.”
When is the new Brexit coin out?
The Brexit 50p coin will be released into circulation on October 31 – the day the UK is due to leave the EU.
As well as the inscriptions “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations”, the date October 31, 2019 will also feature on the coin.
This is to mark the historic date Britain finally divorced the bloc across the pond.

But a bill tabled by the opposition and passed in Parliament says the Prime Minister will have to ask the EU for a three-month delay if a deal has not been agreed by October 19.
So with the exit date hanging in the balance it looks like millions of coins with the wrong date could potentially be released.
The coins will become legal tender and will be stocked by banks and post offices and can be spent in shops.
In total, more than 10 million of these coins will be produced over the coming year.
