Excited… King of England Charles 3 is making his own money!
First coins depicting the portrait of King Charles III unveiled
With the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the portraits on the coins used in the UK began to change. The Royal Mint introduced the 50-cent coin with the portrait of King Charles III and the 5-pound commemorative coins to the public.
The Royal Mint, which has been minting coinage for the British Kingdom for 1100 years, introduced the 50-cent coin and the 5-pound commemorative coins, personally sanctioned by King Charles.
The portrait of King Charles on the 50 cent coin is depicted without a crown, in keeping with the tradition of the Kings of England.
It was stated that the ‘commemorative’ coins will be sold to coin collectors by the Royal Mint from October 3, and the 50-cent coins will be put into circulation for general use before the end of the year.
It is stated that the collection, designed as a commemorative coin, includes depictions of the late Queen Elizabeth as well as King Charles.
The coins were designed by British sculptor Martin Jennings.
