Limited edition piedfort gold proof commemorative coin, struck to mark the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. In 2020 after years of negotiations the UK became the first and only country to leave the EU, the result of a referendum held in 2016. The UK had been an EU member state since 1973. Interestingly, millions of circulated coins were struck before the official withdrawal date was delayed, meaning that the team at The Royal Mint’s facility in Llantrisant had to start all over again on pieces bearing the date 31 January 2020. This is accompanied by a calligraphic design bearing the words ‘Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations’, a line taken from a speech made by Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the United States. The obverse bears Jody Clarks fifth and final definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the denomination: ’50 PENCE’. As this piedfort coin is UK legal tender it is exempt from Capital Gains Tax as well as VAT free thanks to its 22 carat (916.7) gold composition. Like standard circulating Fifty Pence pieces the diameter here is 27.30 millimetres. Just 900 of these gold proof piedfort Brexit coins were issued by The Royal Mint and this one was among the first 150 struck. It’s been graded a PF 69 Ultra Cameo by the Numismatic Guaranty Company and comes sealed in its NGC holder.
