Frequently Asked Questions
2023 proof Sovereigns are available in limited numbers. The Royal Mint only offers a few thousand full proof Sovereigns each year and 2023 is unlikely to mark a deviation from this pattern. 13,040 Platinum Jubilee 2022 proof Sovereigns were issued by The Royal Mint with just 7,995 released in 2021.
2023 Sovereigns are among the first of these gold coins to feature a portrait of King Charles III. That alone will make these coins sought after by collectors in the coming decades. Gold Sovereigns - particularly limited edition proof versions and sets - enjoy a substantial premium over gold and a healthy resale market.
2023 Sovereigns are some of the first UK commemorative coins to feature the new portrait of King Charles III by Martin Jennings. The first definitive coin effigy of His Majesty was unveiled just a few weeks after he ascended the throne, following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The first UK coins to feature a portrait of King Charles III were a range of commemorative memorial coinage, issued to mark the passing of His Majesty’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Charles's portrait also features on the 2022 Memorial Sovereign range and will appear on the obverse of the 2023 gold Sovereign.
2023 Sovereigns will be minted in limited numbers. Proof editions are likely to prove particularly rare. For comparison, 13,040 Platinum Jubilee 2022 proof Sovereigns were issued by The Royal Mint with just 7,995 released in 2021. These 2023 coins will be some of the first to feature a portrait of King Charles III.
Usually, The Royal Mint issues their Sovereigns late in the previous year. However, autumn 2022 marked a break from tradition with the release of the 2022 Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Sovereign, rather than the anticipated 2023 Sovereign. As such we can expect the 2023 Sovereign to be released in the New Year.
2023 Sovereigns are not the first to feature the definitive coin portrait of King Charles III by Martin Jennings. That honour goes to the 2022 Memorial Sovereign, struck as a tribute to the life and legacy of His Majesty’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II. 2023 Sovereigns will be issued in Charles's coronation year.
Yes, there will be a 2023 Sovereign. There were two different Sovereigns released in 2022, first the Platinum Jubilee Sovereign and then the Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Sovereign. The second release pushed back the issue date for the 2023 Sovereign that we're now expecting to appear early in the New Year.
Right now we don't know what the reverse of 2023 Sovereigns will look like. As 2023 is King Charles's coronation year The Royal Mint may celebrate the occasion with a special design like they have celebrated previous royal milestones. Otherwise, we can expect to see the classic St George and the dragon design.
No, Memorial Sovereigns were issued with a 2022 date. These coins marked the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of her son, King Charles III who is shown on the ‘heads side. 2023 Sovereigns will also feature a portrait of King Charles and will be issued in his coronation year.
