Today we’re shining a spotlight on the perfect royal keepsake – The King Charles III Commemorative.
This release has taken the numismatic world by storm. Standing out thanks to its royal significance and its distinguished heraldic design, collectors have been ordering in their thousands!
Read on to find out why…
A Regal Design
The crest design features a striking portrait of His Majesty, King Charles III along with a detailed illustration of the St. Edward’s Crown – the centrepiece of Great Britain’s regalia.
Inspired by a love of nature
Much like the UK’s New Definitive Coins, the design has also taken inspiration from His Majesty’s love of nature with the inclusion of illustrated roses and thistles.
A new era of British History
The date of King Charles III’s Coronation – 6th May 2023 – has been carefully inscribed to mark the moment His Majesty’s journey as crowned sovereign began. As the FIRST Coronation in OVER 70 years, it was the moment that officially started a new era in Great Britain’s history.

Let me introduce you to one of the most expensive coins I’ve ever seen…
Just 5 of these Half Kilo Gold coins have been commissioned to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III on 6 May 2023 and they are priced at a staggering £59,995!
It’s also one of the largest Gold coins I’ve ever seen, measuring an immense 100mm in diameter.
And it needs to be because the coin contains the entirety of King Charles III’s first-ever speech as monarch.
On screens across the world, His Majesty paid tribute to his mother and revealed his vision and desires for this forthcoming reign.
All 977 words he spoke to the nation following the death of his mother. It started:
I speak to you today with feelings of profound sorrow. Throughout her life, Her Majesty The Queen – my beloved Mother – was an inspiration and example to me and to all my family, and we owe her the most heartfelt debt any family can owe to their mother; for her love, affection, guidance, understanding and example. Queen Elizabeth’s was a life well lived; a promise with destiny kept and she is mourned most deeply in her passing. That promise of lifelong service I renew to you all today…King Charles III’s First Speech. 9th September 2022.
But that’s not even a tenth of it.
So even with the large 100mm canvas, it still took something special to fit 977 words onto the coin.
Crafted to the highest standard, the coin features Charles III’s cypher under a crown and the words “FAITH AND DUTY”, but it’s the other 977 words that capture the attention.
His Majesty’s speech has been reproduced using incredible micro-engraving.
How do you fit 977 words on a coin?
It’s a painstakingly precise process, but one that results in one of the most impressive coins issued for the Coronation.
And with just 5 ever to be produced, it’s as close to a piece of art as you’re going to find for a Coronation coin.
The exclusivity, the size, the gold content and the complexity of the minting give the coin a price-tag that you’d expect to see on a brand new Porsche…
£59,995 to be one of just 5 collectors in the world to own this remarkable coin.

Big news has come out of The Royal Mint today, as they have just issued the brand-new 2023 Gold Proof Sovereign!
Released to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III, this new Sovereign is certainly worth adding to your collection for several reasons…
Special Crowned Portrait
What makes this release so unique, is the fact that it features a special crowned portrait of King Charles III – the FIRST time we have ever seen a crowned King on a modern UK Sovereign!
That makes this issue entirely different to King Charles’ first Sovereign released in late 2022, which featured the standard portrait.
You may recognise this special crowned portrait from elsewhere, as it’s the same as the one seen on his Coronation range of coins that came out earlier this year.
To say that these were popular when they were issued back in April would be an understatement. In fact, all premium specifications of the Coronation range sold out in a matter of hours, as collectors made sure they were the first to snap them up.
And the portrait’s not the only thing that’s different about this new issue…
This release is something of a surprise, because we already had a King Charles III Sovereign issued in late 2022 – this featured his new portrait on the obverse and a tribute to Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse.
You therefore might have expected the next UK Sovereign to be issued later this year, but tradition has been bucked and a UK Proof Sovereign has been released in the month of June especially to commemorate King Charles III’s Coronation.
One thing that will surely remain the same though, is that this is a coin that will sell out.
The Sovereign has been the sell-out coin for years now. In fact, the last 9 years have seen consecutive sell-outs, sometimes in a matter of days and even hours.
Struck to a proof finish from 22 Carat Gold, this Sovereign features the iconic Pistrucci design of St George slaying the dragon on the reverse – another first, as this will be the first time a King Charles III Sovereign has carried the 200+ year-old design.
It’s the one Sovereign that collectors simply must own, and there’s no doubt that it will sell out very quickly – especially as just 15,000 have been authorised.
The Coronation has been the most significant numismatic event in recent memory, even surpassing Her Late Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
And one-year-only obverse designs are also very rare for the Sovereign, so when they have been released in the past, they have sold out quickly and become particularly hard to find.
However, we have managed to secure a small quantity of the brand-new Gold Proof Coronation Sovereigns for Westminster Collection customers – but you’ll have to be quick to make one yours!
