2023 British Monarchs King Charles I One Ounce Silver Proof Coin

UK23C1SP 2023 King Charles I British Monarchs Silver Proof One Ounce Coin Boxed
from
£102.50
From a limited edition of 1,350 pieces, this one ounce silver proof addition to the British Monarchs series is a tribute to King Charles I. This fascinating Royal Mint series celebrates historic Kings and Queens of the British Isles and the fascinating coinage issued during their reigns. Starting in 2022, each new release features a historic royal portrait, remastered for modern coinage by The Royal Mint's design team. Their 3D modelling process preserves the imperfections of rare old coins and places them alongside a modern effigy of either the late Queen Elizabeth II or the new King, Charles III. This sixth release in the British Monarchs collection stars the Stuart King Charles I, who ascended the throne in 1625. One of the most controversial monarchs in British history, his autocratic rule is best remembered for sparking civil war in the three kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland, which ultimately led to his overthrow and execution at the hands of victorious Parliamentary forces. The reverse design chosen for this modern interpretation is a portrait of Charles I on horseback by engraver and engineer Nicholas Briot: the only equestrian portrait to feature in the British Monarchs series. This design would have appeared on Crowns and Halfcrowns struck between 1625 and 1649 and it has been beautifully remastered for this proof collector's piece. On the obverse, Martin Jennings' new effigy of King Charles III can be seen. This £2 coin is struck in 31.21 grams of 999 fine silver with a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. As standard this new UK coin comes in its original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
