Coin Information:

On 12th October 2023, it was all change for UK coinage as our 8 definitive coins (from the 1p to the £2) saw a complete redesign. Not only did this mean that after 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II appearing on our coins, each coin had a brand new obverse featuring King Charles III, but it also meant brand new reverse designs for each coin. This is the £1 coins and it features two bumble bees alongside a design of interconnecting letter ‘C’s to represent King Charles III. What's more, a special privy mark has been included on each of these 'first strike' coins. These coins will gradually replace our current circulating coinage, although the versions you find in your change won't include the special privy mark, issued for collectors.
