Coins Bearing Portrait Of King Charles To Enter Circulation

The first coins bearing the official effigy of the King will appear in circulation in post offices around the UK from Thursday.

The King’s portrait will first appear on a 50p, with the reverse, or “tails”, side of the coin commemorating the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II.

A commemorative version of the coin was released in October, generating record visitors to the Royal Mint’s website in the 24 hours following.

A total of 4.9 million 50p coins will enter circulation across 9,452 Post Office branches throughout December.
