Brexit coins to be re-melted

HM Treasury initiated re-melting of three million commemorative 50p coins, BBC reports. It happened as the Brexit fixed earlier for 31 October, for which the coins were originally designed, was delayed again.  According to the agreement reached between London and Brussels, January 31, 2020 is the new date of Brexit. However, it is far from certain that the new date will not be changed again. The coins were supposed to be put into circulation this Friday.

Meanwhile, HM Treasury assured that new commemorative coins would be reproduced again, but only after Great Britain leaves the EU indeed.

 Besides, it is planned to produce 10,000 units of 50p coins for coin collectors. Each will cost 10 pounds sterling.
