For almost a thousand years, each monarch of Britain, and later New Zealand, has been crowned in a special ceremony months after their accession. A coronation is an important day in the history of the nation, a vibrant shared experience for the public, and an occasion of deep personal significance in the life of the monarch. A .25oz gold proof coin has been created to commemorate this momentous occasion.  


  • Celebrates the historic accession and coronation of King Charles III
  • Features the effigy of King Charles III on the obverse 
  • Reverse design features the St Edward’s Crown 
  • Minted from .25oz of 0.9999 gold 
  • Designed by Fuller Design, Wellington, New Zealand 
  • Worldwide limited mintage of 500.  


The St Edward’s crown takes centre stage as it is the crown used in the moment of King Charles’ coronation. The surrounding design is inspired by the gold aiguillette worn by the military, typically as part of ceremonial attire for special events, or in recognition of an honour or achievement. 

Each coin in this issue features a portrait of the King on the obverse. Wellington designer and illustrator Stephen Fuller developed the effigy to be used on New Zealand commemorative coins, and it was personally approved by the King.
