PM unveils the government’s full plans to commemorate Brexit day on the 31st of January.
The commemorative 50p coin will come into circulation on the day the UK leaves the EU. The public will see 3 million of these coins enter their banks, shops and restaurants from the 31 January, with a further 7 million entering circulation later this year. The Prime Minister will be one of the first to receive the new Brexit coin, which reads ‘Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations’. 13,000 people have already registered their interest in the coin with The Royal Mint.
On 1 February, the new GREAT ‘Ready to Trade’ campaign will launch in 17 cities across 13 countries outside the EU, as the UK seeks to deepen their relationships with future global partners. Today a new campaign aimed at businesses and citizens will launch with the message ‘This Friday the UK leaves the EU’. It will urge them to check for any changes they need to make ahead of January 2021.
Next Friday marks an important moment in the history of United Kingdom. No matter how you voted in 2016, it is the time to look ahead with confidence to the global, trail-blazing country we will become over the next decade and heal past divisions. That is what I will be doing on 31 January and I urge everyone across the UK to do the same. Prime Minister Boris Johnson
Throughout next week, the Prime Minister and ministers across government will meet with people and businesses across the UK encouraging the whole country to look ahead.
