ROYAL Mint has revealed its latest coin collection — based on emojis including the poop.
It is one of six themed 50p pieces — the others feature a peach, a heart, a flame, an aubergine and a crying with laughter smiley.

They are expected to go into circulation next month — with colour editions set to follow later in the year.
Coin expert Penny Silver said: “What with Brexit, Royal Mint must have decided everyone could use some light relief.
“Emojis are a great way to communicate and express ourselves, so it makes sense to mark this with a coin collection.”
It comes after last year’s special Paddington Bear 50p.
