The previous plans were for the coins to be struck for the previous Brexit deadline of March 31th. AS the deadline was delayed, so the coins were never issued.

The Telegraph is now reporting that Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid is seeking a ramping up of production so that millions could be in general circulation and “ready to spend” by 31 October.

This plan is quite different of his predecessor one’s, Philip Hammond. He had planned for 10,000 commemorative coins to be minted and that they would only be available to purchase at a cost of €10. So that these coins were provided only for collector’s market. The new one are struck for general circulation and stress the political decision to leave EU in general public.

As previously planned, new coins will still be marked with the words “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations” but will now have the Brexit date as 31 October, 2019.
