2022 King Charles III 'Queen Elizabeth II' Memorial 2oz Gold Proof + Boxed / COA

The first official coinage of King Charles III commemorating the life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The 3 coins making up the memorial collection, issued 3rd October 2022 all carry the first portrait of His Majesty The King, created by British sculptor Martin Jennings. The King’s portrait faces to the left the opposite to Queen Elizabeth II (right) as is traditional upon a new monarch's reign. The Latin inscription surrounding the effigy reads “• CHARLES III • D • G • REX • F • D translates to ‘King Charles III, by the Grace of God, Defender of the Faith’. 

The reverse features two new portraits of Queen Elizabeth II. The design was created by artist John Bergdahl in collaboration with The Royal Mint. It forms part of a wider memorial coin collection, which includes a 50p which will be released into general circulation in the UK.

Martin Jennings, Designer of His Majesty King Charles III’s effigy, said: “It is a privilege to sculpt the first official effigy of His Majesty and to receive his personal approval for the design. The portrait was sculpted from a photograph of The King, and was inspired by the iconic effigies that have graced Britain’s coins over the centuries. It is the smallest work I have created, but it is humbling to know it will be seen and held by people around the world for centuries to come.”
