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 5oz silver 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 a colour portrait of the King in military uniform
- Minted from 5oz of 0.999 silver
- Designed by Fuller Design, Wellington, New Zealand
- Worldwide limited mintage of 250.
Commemorating the historic coronation of King Charles III, this 5oz silver coin features a painted portrait of the King in his Queen’s Guard uniform. The circular gold background is symbolic of the His Majesty's medals, and the intricate pattern is inspired by the embroidery on the collar of the Scots Guard uniform. 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.
