Because we’re Britain and fundamentally naff, we are apparently releasing a special 50p coin to mark the day of Brexit – to be released 29 March 2019.
The Sun’s run a rather terrifying mock-up of it:

While it won’t look like this in reality, your mole can’t help but notice this coin is a perfect metaphor for the horror of Brexit.
It’s an empty, patriotic gimmick.
It’s entirely pointless.
It uses public resources on a foregone conclusion.
It’s based on lies (“Friendship with all Nations”, eh?).
It’s precisely the amount we’ll be left with in our wallets after Brexit.
It’s a concession to the most frothing Brexiteers.
Only old people and some Tory MPs will like it.
