2023 King Charles III Gold Laurel

  Description    Specifications      Free Delivery   


The FIRST EVER Laurel of the reign of Charles III

On Thursday 8th September 2022, a brand new chapter for the Royal House of Windsor began following the accession of the Prince of Wales at the age of 73. His official crowning eight months later in Westminster Abbey marked the official start of the reign of King Charles III and was, incredibly, Britain’s first Coronation in seventy years!

To honour His Majesty, the FIRST EVER Laurel coin to feature the monarch is now available to own. Officially approved by Buckingham Palace, the limited edition King Charles III Gold Proof Laurel has been expertly struck in 22 Carat Gold to the most immaculate Proof finish and takes its inspiration from the original Laurel from the reign of James I who ruled England from 1603 until 1625.

The King’s only right-facing effigy

Appearing on the obverse of the brand new Laurel is a new portrait by leading engraver Jody Clark – this is the only right-facing effigy of the King who traditionally faces left on our coinage. The Head of State is also depicted, again for the first time ever, wearing a laurel wreath head-dress - just as his Stuart ancestor did more than 400 years ago and from where the coin takes its name. On the reverse meanwhile, is a design also based on the 17th century original featuring a Royal Crown above a Quartered Shield.

Extremely high demand expected

As the FIRST EVER Laurel of Charles III’s reign, featuring a right-facing portrait of the King for the first time ever, demand to own this coveted release in honour of Britain’s new monarch is expected to be high.

However, this magnificent gold coin has been issued with a low 999-piece worldwide edition limit, so should therefore be secured immediately to avoid disappointment. Each coin comes housed and protected within a luxury Presentation Case, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity which confirms its official specifications.
