Product information "2023 Silver coin Britannia Charles 1oz"
These Britannia coins contain the first ever inclusion of the portrait of King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings.
Both Queen Elizabeth and King Charles coins will be in circulation together.
For the new obverse His Majesty had his left-profile. The tradition for British monarchs to face a different direction to their predecessor dates back to the seventeenth century.
Another detail on this coin: While Queen Elizabeth II was shown wearing a crown the portrait of Charles sports no glittering headgear or other symbols of his royal status. The inscriptions around the portrait read CHARLES III • D • G • REX • F • D • 2 pounds • 2023.
