Elizabeth II, EEC 50 Pence Proof, 1973 (in Royal Mint Case)
There has been all this noise about the Brexit coin released recently by the Royal Mint. We are now going to offer you the first Real Brexit Coin. Namely the old large sized 50 Pence that was issued in 1973, some 47 years ago when we joined the European Union. You cannot leave unless you are already a member!
This coin is the old large style 50 Pence and it depicted 9 hands of the European Community holding each other in a circle. Far fewer members, far easier to get things done. This original First Real Brexit Coin was struck in cupro-nickel in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. Here we offer the Proof coin in a Royal Mint case. They are a lot more difficult to find than the new Brexit coin and are of course 47 years old and to be honest perhaps cheaper.
