To celebrate the historic crowning of King Charles III, a brand new fifty pence coin has been authorised for release

2023 is a landmark year in the history of our nation and monarchy, as King Charles III is crowned our King. To mark this momentous occasion, the first coronation many of us will have ever witnessed; the King Charles III Fifty Pence coin has been authorised to be issued.

Unique Portrait of King Charles by Jody Clark 

King Charles III’s coronation is a celebration of not only His Majesty but also an ode to tradition and legacy. These elements are perfectly reflected in the design of this bran new fifty pence coin. On the obverse is Jody Clark's exceptional portrait of our new king. Jody Clark designed the Fifth (and final) Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which appeared on all her British coinage from 2015 to 2022. King Charles has chosen to be portrayed without a crown for his coinage, keeping it understated and 'simple' and modern.

The coin’s reverse is a richly symbolic representation of Britain's monarchy, its traditions and a reminder of the continuation of the line of our monarchy. It features the St Edwards Crown, last worn during Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, 70 years ago. It will be this crown that Charles uses in his coronation. 

Struck to a gleaming collector’s PROOF finish & layered in pure Silver

In recognition of the significance of the first coronation, we are witnessing for 70 years the King Charles III Fifty Pence Coin has been layered silver and struck to the finest collectors’ Proof quality.
