What Is The Royal Mint British Monarchs Series?
British coinage provides a fascinating insight into the reigns of the nation's monarchs, documenting developments in politics, art and technology across the centuries. The Royal Mint are celebrating this rich legacy with a new series focusing on the royals whose faces have graced our currency.
Billed as a five-year series, the British Monarchs collection will feature 21 Kings and Queens, starting with Tudor dynasty. The series kicked off with a collection featuring King Henry VII in early 2022. Three further releases are slated for this year including coins starring James I, George I and Edward VII: all the first monarchs of their respective houses. The British Monarchs series is projected to run until 2026.
Who Was King Edward VII?
Edward VII became King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, plus the British Dominions and Emperor of India following the death of his mother, Queen Victoria, in 1901. During the next decade, Edward oversaw the modernisation of the British Army and lent his popularity and political influence to foster good relations across the channel. We call his time on the throne the Edwardian Era after him: a period noted for significant social and technological change.
Throughout Edward VII’s short reign his British coins featured a right-facing portrait of the King by a Birmingham-born engraver named George William de Saulles. De Saulles had previously worked on Queen Victoria’s coinage and is also known for his British Trade Dollar designs. De Saulles’ portrait of Edward shows the King facing right with short-cropped hair and a full beard. The portrait is truncated at the neck and de Saulles' initials - 'De S' - appear below.
