The Royal Mint has JUST been confirmed that a brand-new range of coins is set to be issued on Monday 3rd October at 9am, commemorating Queen Elizabeth II’s life and reign.
And in particularly interesting news for Change Checkers, the coins will feature the brand-new portrait of King Charles III for the very first time.
The King’s effigy has been created by renowned British sculptor Martin Jennings, and has been personally approved by His Majesty.
In keeping with tradition, The King’s portrait faces to the left, the opposite direction to Queen Elizabeth II.
As well as the new Royal 50p, a new £5 coin will also be available in the range, as shown below.
The 50p will also enter circulation in the coming months and will also be available alongside the £5 coin in a range of denominations and specifications. Register your interest below.
