U.K. to melt down commemorative Brexit coins amid repeated delays

The U.K.’s Royal Mint plans to melt down and recycle the commemorative coins minted to mark Brexit on October 31, after the U.K.’s exit from the European Union (EU) was delayed by three months until January 31, 2020. The concept of a new 50-pence coin, featuring the U.K.’s scheduled departure date from the economic bloc, will now be moved to a later date. “We will still produce a coin to mark our departure from the European Union,” a U.K. Treasury official said.
