    Personally - I will not have them in the house.

    Friendship with all nations - what a f***ing hypocrite.

    Somehow I suspect that by this time next year all this Brexit triumphalism will be more subdued.

    @peakster "what a ******* hypocrite" was also my first thought!

    Brexit will not achieve any of those things.

    I will put them in a jam jar and when/if there are a significant number I will donate them to a charity- probably one that helps refugees.

    Stuff you Brexit.

    I strongly suspect I will feel sad whenever I see one of those coins. They commemorate the end of a mutually beneficial relationship between us and the rest of Europe.:(

    Spend it on something worth 50p...

    Is this a trick question?

    Awful; especially as there were better design options sent in

    When the coin first appeared, under the Wilson government, I remember it was called the Wilson: many-sided, two-faced and not worth much. No progress then.

    I'll put them in a jar for when I next have to pay hospital parking fees, like that's ever going to end.

    I will not accept it if I get one. I mostly pay with cards and the only place I pay with cash is the small corner shop,so we'll see if I ever get one.
