First coin featuring King Charles

First coin featuring King Charles

London, Dec 8 (UNI) The first ever coin featuring King Charles III appeared in people's change on Thursday.
The 50p officially entered circulation and was available from Post Offices around the UK, the Sun reported.
The King’s portrait will appear on the coin where Queen Elizabeth II's face previously appeared.
But the other side of the coin will still feature a nod to the late Royal, as it is a new design commemorating the life and legacy of the Queen.
The reverse of the 50p features a design which originally appeared on the 1953 Coronation Crown, the Sun reported.
It was struck to commemorate the Queen’s coronation at Westminster Abbey and includes the four quarters of the Royal Arms depicted within a shield.
Between each shield is an emblem of the home nations: a rose, a thistle, a shamrock and a leek.
A commemorative version of the coin was released in October and the Royal Mint website crashed as collectors rushed to snap one up, the report said.
