Upcoming 2023 King Charles III Coins

Star Wars™ 50ps

The first UK Star Wars™ 50p was released in July and featured R2-D2™ and C-3PO™ inside the Millennium Falcon.

A far cry from the lovable droid duo, the second UK Star Wars™ 50p took us over to the dark side, featuring Darth Vader™ and Emperor Palpatine™.

The next 2 coins in the series have also been revealed and we can expect these to be released later this year. We know they’ll feature Luke Skywalker™ & Princess Leia™ and Han Solo™ & Chewbacca™!

King Charles III’s 75th Birthday £5

King Charles III will celebrate his 75th birthday in 2023 – just 6 months after he was crowned King.

To commemorate his birthday, a brand-new £5 coin will be issued.

The reverse will feature a floral arrangement surrounding His Royal Cypher, the number 75 and the inscription, “HIS MAJESTY KING CHARLES III 1948 2023”.

When will we see King Charles III Definitive Coins?

It’s been announced that we can expect to see the first UK coinage featuring King Charles III issued very soon! Perhaps the biggest change to UK coinage in decades, both collectors and the general public are getting excited about our everyday coins changing.

Whilst we’ve already seen commemorative 50p and £2 coins issued featuring King Charles III, this will be the first time he will have featured on a UK 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p and £1 coin!

It’s been 15 years since we last saw a new reverse design on UK Definitive Coins and this will be the first time EVER that both reverse and obverse designs will change at the same time.

    I have just found a £2 Shakespeare tragedies coin in my Change with the wrong wording around the edge of the coin,it has for king and country which belong on the first world war Army coin. Just wondering if you have any idea how much it might be worth

    I have now found Charles 111 50pence. Could someone please explain why they are not dated 2022. Poor quality though, looks very rushed! Thanks in advance.
