OCTOBER 1, 2022
The Royal Mint has today unveiled the first coin to bear King Charles III’s portrait, a 50p coin due to enter circulation later this year. British sculptor Martin Jennings created King Charles III’s official coinage portrait, which was personally approved by the King. To mark the historic moment of the King’s accession, the 50p coin will enter circulation as the coins are produced by The Royal.
