When the U.K. voted to withdraw from the European Union in a move widely referred to as “Brexit,” citizens responded with a range of opinions and emotions.
While some residents of the U.K. voiced concerns about the uncertainty surrounding such a departure, others celebrated the move as well as the potential changes it will inevitably produce.
One resident decided to mark the monumental decision—and his support of it—by striking gold- and silver-plated commemorative Brexit coins, which were offered on eBay for £4.99 (about $8.70 Cdn.) plus £1.60 shipping.
The coin reads: “Never give our sovereignty away again. I voted to get back our sovereign independance (sic).”
“I designed 300 of these coins because there was (sic) none out there that said what I felt about leaving the EU,” reads the eBay listing by user “gentmanmike.”
“I voted Brexit and I’m proud of it. I voted for more stricter border checks. For the right to vote out people who do not do their jobs to a democratic satisfaction. These coins were never made for profit, just as a celebration.”
