Britain to consider coins with Mahatma Gandhi's image, Sunak confirms

Aug 02, 2020 21:22 IST

The United Kingdom is considering to have Mahatma Gandhi's image on the British coins, the country's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak's office said on Monday. The idea that was originally proposed in October 2019 by his predecessor Sajid Javid will be implemented in an effort to celebrate the achievements of non-white people. In his letter to the Royal Mint Advisory Committee, Sunak has extended his support to the 'We Too Built Britain Campaign' and has recommended various designs and themes for the British coins. Sunak said that Black, Asian, and other ethnic minority groups have made a profound contribution to the shared history of Britain.
