Queen Elizabeth II & King Charles III 2023 Britannia Set
In the world of numismatics, every coin tells a story, and there are some stories that hold more significance than others. The Her Last, His First - Queen Elizabeth II & King Charles III 2023 Britannia Set, presented by Rosland, is a collection that goes beyond its precious metal composition – it embodies the legacy of two monarchs and marks a monumental moment in the history of British coinage.
Imagine holding in your hands a tangible piece of history, a link to the reigns of two celebrated monarchs. The Her Last, His First Britannia set is a remarkable ensemble, featuring not one, but two coins that pay tribute to the legacies of Her Late Majesty The Queen and His Majesty King Charles III.
Two Historic Reigns
This exceptional twin set comprises two gold 24k (.9999) Britannia coins, each possessing its own narrative and historical significance. The first coin is graced with the effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Released in the autumn of 2022, this coin has first strike designation, meaning it was struck within 30 days of being issued by The Royal Mint. But the story doesn't end there – its minting journey came to an abrupt end upon The Queen's passing in early September, resulting in a rarity that makes it more than just a coin; it's a piece of history frozen in time.
The second coin, also first strike, is the updated version of the 2023 Gold Britannia, now featuring the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III. This transition marks a significant numismatic milestone, the first time in British history where Britannia coins have been minted for two separate monarchs while sharing the same year. Together, these two coins perfectly capture this pivotal moment, encapsulating the transition of power and the continuation of an enduring legacy.
