The rollout of entirely redesigned King Charles III coinage begins

The first batch of entirely redesigned UK coins to mark the reign of King Charles III has made its way to Vaultex.

The King Charles III 50p piece, which bears the Atlantic Salmon, is the first denomination of His Majesty’s new coinage to enter circulation in-line with demand from UK banks and post offices. Members of the public may start to see these in circulation from the end of this month (November 2023).

Other denominations, which retain the same shape and size as their predecessors and continue His Majesty’s love of the natural world, will enter circulation in-line with demand from 2024.

With several million coins in production, it’s a pleasure to continue our longstanding partnership with The Royal Mint and help facilitate the rollout.
