Millions of 50p coins marking Britain's departure from the European Union are set to enter banks, post offices and shops this week.
Chancellor Sajid Javid has unveiled the first images of the commemorative pieces, which bear an inscription along with the date the UK is set to leave – January 31.
The coins will be available from Friday, with a further seven million expected to enter circulation later this year.
The special edition silver pieces have been minted with the inscription: "Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations."
Mr Javid said: "Leaving the European Union is a turning point in our history and this coin marks the beginning of this new chapter."
More than 13,000 people have registered their interest in a commemorative version of the coin produced by the Royal Mint.
South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay, a supporter of the plans, told KentOnline in August: "Our joining the then European Economic Community was commemorated with millions of 50p coins minted for general circulation.
"I am really pleased to see that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced that our departure from the EU should similarly be marked with a general circulation coin.
“This is a time for national celebration that our independence and new global freedom is with us.
“Great news and a clear, positive indication of intent from the Prime Minister and his new government.”
About one million coins made for the original withdrawal date of the end of October had to be melted down.
As part of the launch, the Royal Mint will also open its doors for 24 hours to let people strike their own commemorative coins.
