The Official UK King Charles III Coronation Coins Confirmed
Last week, it was announced that King Charles III will celebrate his Coronation with a brand-new range of UK coins.
And today, you have the chance to make sure you don’t miss out…
What we know so far about the UK Coronation Coins
The Royal Proclamation detailed a range of limited-edition coin specifications including a 50p and a £5 coin, a Sovereign, and an ounces range; the perfect way to honour this historic occasion.
The launch date is yet to be confirmed, but considering that the first UK coronation in 70 years is now less than two months away, collectors are eagerly awaiting further news.

We’re expecting huge demand for these coins. Especially when you hear about the designs…
The Royal Proclamation has declared that the reverse of the new UK 50p will feature the Royal Cypher of King Charles III against the exterior of Westminster Abbey.
Additionally, the reverse design of the £5 coin is set to feature St Edward’s Crown accompanied by text stating “THE CORONATION OF KING CHARLES III 6th MAY 2023”.
The proclamation also confirmed that the Sovereign range will feature the classic St. George & the Dragon design. It’ll be the first King Charles III sovereign with this reverse, making it excellent to pair with the UK 2022 Memorial Sovereign.
Unprecedented demand expected
Demand for these coronation coins is sure to outweigh supply.
We saw 24-hour sell-outs for the Queen’s UK Platinum Jubilee coin range, so it’s inevitable that demand for these coins will follow suit…

Approved by Buckingham Palace – The Official King Charles III Coronation Coins
A series of coronation coins have been approved by Buckingham Palace – featuring the official British Isles portrait of King Charles III.
Whilst we await for confirmation on a UK coronation coin, Buckingham Palace has approved a series of 50p coins celebrating His Majesty’s upcoming coronation in May.
However, one particular coin has been catching the attention of collectors…
The Dual-Plated King Charles III Coronation 50p
This 50p features the inscription ‘God Save the King‘ and is uniquely plated with a dual-plated finish of silver and 24 carat gold – not something we see very often.
This is the first coin in a brand new British Isles 50p series being issued over the coming months in the lead up to the coronation, all approved by the King himself.
You can add this coin to your collection today for our introductory offer of £4.99 (+p&p) – a saving of £20 – by clicking here.
Meet the obverse designer – Glyn Davies
In anticipation of these coins being issued, we spoke with Glyn Davies – the artist behind the British Isles King Charles III coinage portrait.
He explained that the process of creating our monarch’s portrait took him nearly 6 months. It involved initial sketches, concept sketches, clay models, digital drawings, and even having Raphael Maklouf check over them.
Raphael Maklouf famously designed the United Kingdom’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II that appeared on our coinage between 1985 to 1997.
