In keeping with tradition, the King’s portrait faces to the left, the opposite direction to Queen Elizabeth II.

The Latin inscription translates to: “King Charles III, by the Grace of God, Defender of the Faith”.

The Mint will release a memorial coin range on Monday October 3 at 9am to commemorate the life and legacy de Queen Elizabeth II.

Anne Jessopp, CEO of the Royal Mint, dicho: “The Royal Mint has been trusted to make coins bearing the monarch’s effigy for over 1,100 years and we are proud to continue this tradition into the reign of King Charles III.

Although technology has progressed, we continue to honour British craftsmanship passed down through the centuries.

Our team of skilled modellers, tool makers and engravers will ensure that the King’s effigy will be faithfully replicated onto millions of coins.

Her Late Majesty ruled with heart and devotion for 70 años, and this memorial collection commemorates her remarkable legacy as Britain’s longest-serving monarch.
