On Friday 31st, 2020, the UK parliament passed the EU Withdrawal Bill and Britain left the European Union.  The UK Brexit Fifty Pence Coin set marks this iconic moment in our nation’s history – an enduring reminder of the sovereignty and independence of the United Kingdom.

The UK Brexit Fifty Pence Coin Set tells the complete story of Britain’s relationship with the EU - featuring the original UK 1973 50p coin, issued to commemorate the entry of the UK into the European Economic Community (later to become the European Union) as well as the Sterling Silver Proof and cupronickel Brilliant Uncirculated UK fifty pence coins struck by Royal Mint to mark Britain’s departure from the EU in 2020.

In fact, one of the coins in this set also marks a numismatic first.  The 1973 EEC Fifty Pence Coin was the first-ever commemorative British fifty pence coin issued and bears the circular image of nine hands clasped in mutual friendship – mirroring the nine members of the EEC at the time Britain joined.

The set also includes the UK fifty pence coins struck in 2020 by Royal Mint to mark the departure of Britain from the EU and bears the Thomas Jefferson quote, “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations”, alongside the date that Britain officially withdrew from the EU, 31st January 2020.  Both the Sterling Silver Proof and Cupro Nickel Brilliant Uncirculated editions are featured.

The tale of Britain’s arrival and departure from the European Union has many twists and turns – even the issue of the fifty pence coin in 2020 was far from straight forward.  The history booklet included with the UK Brexit Fifty Pence coin set serves as a concise account of Britain’s relationship with Europe from entry into the EEC to departure from the EU – entirely FREE of charge.

If there was one definitive coin set to mark Britain’s departure from the EU, this is it!
