We’ve been keeping an eye on the latest Royal Proclamations and excitingly, these 2023 dated King Charles III 50p, £2, and £5 coins have been announced…
Upcoming 2023 King Charles III Coins
Hogwarts School 50p
Also bearing the effigy of King Charles III, the Hogwarts School 50p will also be issued in 2023.
This 50p’s design will be inspired by Jim Kay’s 2015 fully-illustrated version of the book, featuring a depiction of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
National Health Service 50p
Excitingly, we can expect a new NHS 50p to be issued in 2023, marking its 75th anniversary.
“· CHARLES III · D · G · REX · F · D · 50 PENCE ·” and the date of the year are set to appear on the obverse.
For the reverse, the inscription “NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE 75” surrounds by words describing qualities associated with the NHS.
Windrush Generations 50p
2022 will mark 75 years since the arrival of Empire Windrush in the UK, carrying people from British Commonwealth countries.
The reverse design will depict a man and a woman set against a Union flag accompanied by the number 75 and the inscription “WINDRUSH GENERATIONS”.
J. R. R. Tolkien £2
2023 marks 50 years since the death of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit author, J. R. R. Tolkien.
To commemorate his work and achievements, a new £2 coin will be issued, featuring his famous monogram on the reverse design.
The reverse will also bear the inscription “1892 JRR TOLKIEN 1973 WRITER · POET · SCHOLAR”.
The edge inscription will read, “NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST” – a quote from The Fellowship of the Ring.
King Charles III 75th Birthday £5
King Charles III will celebrate his 75th birthday in 2023 – just 6 months after he will be 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”.

Charles in your Change – where will you find a KCIII 50p and how much is it worth?
A new UK 50p has entered circulation featuring King Charles III’s portrait for the first time – but collectors are wondering, “how much is it worth?”
Special collector versions of the coins have already been issued and their limited edition presentations sold out within JUST HOURS!
4.9 million of these very 50ps will begin circulating from December.
You all know how many people will want this coin.
So, it could be tricky to get your hands on one.
How will you find the new KCIII 50p?
That’s why Change Checker is launching our Charles in your Change campaign – helping you collectors increase your chances of finding this 50p.
We’re asking the UK public to register where in the country they found it.
This will help us to update our collector map showing the best hot spots to find the new coin.
We’ll update this every week, so you can keep track of where, and how quickly these coins are moving around the country.
What will the King Charles III 50p be worth?
Any avid collectors knows the worth of a scarce coin.
A look at the Change Checker Scarcity Index will show you just how sought-after UK coins can be.
The coin at the top of the 50p Scarcity Index is the Kew Gardens 50p – just 210,000 entered circulation in 2009 and they still (over 13 years later) fetch around £100 on secondary market sites.
The value of the King Charles III 50p depends on what someone is prepared to pay in the future – that’s part of the joy of collecting.
But, you can be sure that if you find one in your change, you’ll own a small piece of history – the very first coin of King Charles III’s reign. And remember, it’ll never be worth less than its face value of 50p.
When will there be more coins?
Look out for a new £1 coin design next year.
It’ll be the first new £1 design since 2017 and excitingly, the very first £1 coin that could feature King Charles III’s portrait on the obverse. Find out more here >>
And of course, look out for those definitive coins – 1p – £2 coins. They will, inevitably, be redesigned in the future to have His Majesty’s portrait on them.
The first definitive coins of a new monarch’s reign mark a significant moment in numismatic history. Consequently, collectors will be racing to find a complete set of definitive coins.
