THREE million commemorative 50p Brexit coins will enter banks, Post Offices and shops across the country from Friday morning.
A further seven million will enter circulation in the months ahead.
The coin bears the inscription: “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations” and the date that Britain is leaving the EU.
As Master of the Mint, Sajid Javid was given the very first batch of Brexit coins one of which he will present to the Prime Minister this week.
More than 13,000 people have already registered their interest in a commemorative version of the coin which is available to buy from the Royal Mint.
After seeing the coin for the first time yesterday, Chancellor Sajid Javid said: “Leaving the EU is a turning point in our history.”
He added: “This coin marks the beginning of this new chapter.”
As part of the launch, the Royal Mint will also open its doors for 24-hours to let people strike their own 'Peace, Prosperity and Friendship with all Nations' commemorative coins.
