The Royal Mint have revealed a special Coronation portrait of King Charles III, which will feature on the United Kingdom’s range of Coronation Coins.
The portrait shows King Charles III wearing the Tudor Crown, a design that is unique to the Coronation Range – this includes the UK’s first Coronation 50p, a £5, an Ounce and a Sovereign.
The 50p itself features a design by Natasha Jenkins of the King’s Royal Cypher, alongside the front of Westminster Abbey where he will be crowned on 6th May 2023.
The £5 coin, designed by renowned coin artist Timothy Noad, features the St Edward’s Crown joined by other Coronation Regalia.
And finally, the Ounce coins feature a heraldic design by John Bergdahl.
All designs have been personally approved by the King himself and will be available from 9am on 24th April 2023, on The Westminster Collection’s website.
