The world’s first official crowned portrait of His Majesty King Charles III will be released on Monday 24 April at 9am (BST). This limited edition coronation coin collection marks the historic event taking place at Westminster Abbey on 6 May 2023. This beautifully crafted range is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history. 

50p Series

The reverse design that appears on the UK 50p coin in the collection is inspired by the iconic architecture of Westminster Abbey. Designed by Natasha Jenkins, a product designer at The Royal Mint, the design also incorporates King Charles III’s cypher. A must-have for 50p coin collectors, the coin is available in limited numbers as a gold Proof, silver Proof Piedfort and silver Proof edition, as well as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition.

£5 Series

Designed by acclaimed designer Timothy Noad, the beautiful reverse of the £5 coin in the collection focuses on the royal regalia traditionally associated with the coronation ceremony, including the St Edward’s Crown and the Sovereign’s Sceptres. The coin will be available to own as a gold Proof, silver Proof Piedfort, silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated edition.

Ounce Series

Available in several editions and sizes across different precious metals, the third reverse design in our collection is designed by experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl. The ornate design features the crowned shield of the Royal Arms surrounded by flourishes containing the floral emblems of the four nations of the United Kingdom.

Sovereign

In addition, the collection will also include a very limited number of Sovereigns struck on 6 May 2023, the day of the coronation, as the perfect way for collectors to commemorate this momentous occasion. This is the first opportunity to own a 2023 Sovereign.
