Well actually two of them available as a set from the Royal Mint from 9am! I’m not a coin collector but something about these coins means they come wrapped in irony.

 

Both are commemorative coins arriving several years late, a bit like the governments no deal preps. Then,  on the eve of Theresa Mays possibly calamitous defeat on her Brexit deal and the very real possibility of a no deal Brexit, the Royal mint decides to release a coin with “Be Prepared” stamped on it. Brilliant. Smiley LOL

The government is actually ahead of the curve. Smiley LOL

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Won't be long before the chocolate ten bob is worth more than the real one.
