Anne Jessopp, CEO of the Royal Mint, 说: “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 年, and this memorial collection commemorates her remarkable legacy as Britain’s longest-serving monarch.
