Now that Queen Elizabeth II has died, the mint will have to print and make new coins with the portrait of King Charles III. And the public has already been presented with an updated design of pennies. People writes about this.

The profile of King Charles III will appear on the 50 pence coins. He personally approved the coinage, representatives of the Royal Mint said.

“Today we are honored to present the first official image of His Majesty King Charles III, which first appeared on the memorial coin collection dedicated to the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II,” the Royal Mint website says.

The Royal Mint has been producing coins for the United Kingdom for more than 1100 years, including coins dedicated to the Platinum Jubilee of the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty's reign.< /p>

The portrait of the new king was created by the sculptor Martin Jennings.

“This is the smallest work I've created, but it's very exciting to know that people around the world will see and keep it for centuries,” Jennings said, adding that the profile was created from a photograph of Charles.

Interestingly, the profile of the new king is turned to the left, while the face of his mother, the late queen, looked to the right on the coins. This is a tradition to make it easier to distinguish the coins of the new monarch from the coins of the old coinage.

“Charles followed the general tradition that exists in British coinage, starting with Charles II, when the monarch faces in the opposite direction to its predecessor,” said Chris Barker of the Royal Mint Museum.

In the portrait on the coins, the king is depicted without a crown, he is surrounded by an inscription in Latin, which reads: “King Charles III, by the grace of God, defender of the faith.”

“When we first minted coins, this was the only way people could find out how to really looked like a monarch. That was before social networks,” joked Anne Jessopp, chief executive of the Royal Mint.

Prince Charles inherited the throne after the death of the Queen on September 8. Charles's firstborn, Prince William, 40, is now next in line for the most famous throne in the world, followed by his firstborn, Prince George, 9.
