More about the Brexit 50p

Issued to commemorate the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union which took place on the 31 January 2020.

The withdrawal serves as culmination of a period in British history kicked off by a referendum on 23 June 2016 which was followed by the country triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017.

Designed by Sajid Javid who was Chancellor of the Exchequer at the time the coin was released.


The Brexit 50p isn’t the only coin featuring Britain’s relationship with the European Union.
