The 2023 King Charles III Britannia coin: A closer look

To mark the accession to the throne of King Charles III, the Royal Mint is offering collectors and investors the opportunity to purchase bullion coins featuring a brand-new portrait of King Charles III by Martin Jennings. The portrait can be seen on the front of the coin. The back of the coin features the iconic Britannia design by Philip Nathan. This coin is unique because it has a raft of additional aesthetic and security features. The micro-text on the rim of the coin, which is written in Latin, translates as ‘an ornament and a safeguard.’ The trident, a long-standing symbol of the naval history of Britannia, morphs into a padlock when the viewer looks at the coin from different angles.

The Royal Mint’s new collection of bullion coins is likely to appeal to collectors, fans of the Royal Family, investors and those interested in coins and unique memorabilia, but can you use a gold coin or silver coin as legal tender?

As the coins are legal tender, they are exempt from capital gains tax for UK residents. This is essential information for experienced investors and those interested in diversifying their investment portfolios or investing in gold or silver coins for the first time.
