Quote from: FosseWay on September 09, 2022, 06:46:13 AMNo, we can't expect new coins this year - the new monarch's coins generally appear in the calendar year following their succession.
Quote from: Deeman on September 09, 2022, 08:10:34 PMThe last time coins of two monarchs appeared in the same year was 1727 - George I and George II. That was for currency coinage, but with the proliferation of commemorative issues there may be a possibility of 2022 issues in Charles' name that are scheduled but not yet issued.
Quote from: FosseWay on September 09, 2022, 09:48:39 PMYou're right about the scheduled but not issued collector coins - it depends on how quickly they can prepare the portrait, I guess.
Quote from: Alan71 on September 10, 2022, 07:26:07 PMThere's talk that the Queen's coins will gradually be removed from circulation over several years/decades.

Quote from: Deeman on September 10, 2022, 08:45:12 PMThat would make him 103!
Quote from: andyg on September 10, 2022, 09:00:20 PMTrue, but his dad lived to 99, mum to 96., grandma till 102.
Quote from: Alan71 on September 10, 2022, 10:42:40 PMIt should have gone straight to William. That would have given more stability. From now (age 40) he could likely have made it to a Golden Jubilee.
Quote from: eurocoin on September 13, 2022, 06:30:30 AMThe Royal Australian Mint has confirmed that they will be using a portrait that is supplied by The Royal Mint. The mint continues to produce Australian coins depicting the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II until the portrait of King Charles III is ready for production. The portrait of King Charles III will be unveiled in due course. The mint does not comment on the name of the designer of the new portrait. It may still take upto 12 months from the unveiling, before the first coins are being released. Though the mint has confirmed that no 2023-dated circulating coins depicting the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II will be minted.
