Will there be a King Charles coronation coin?
On Monday, April 24, Royal Mint will release an official limited-edition King Charles coronation coin, with UK 50p coins and £5 coins available. Some stockists have created their own King Charles coronation coins, such as the Westminster Abbey shop (though this is currently out of stock).
Will there be a King Charles coronation medal?
Lots of people are wondering will King Charles have a coronation medal?, as when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned Queen in 1953, a commemorative coronation medal was released. Other special occasions within the monarchy, such as The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, have also been celebrated with the release of a medal, so it is expected that there will be a medal for King Charles’s coronation - however, no confirmation of this has been given yet.
While there's no word on an official medal yet, the Armed Forces charity AWARD has created its own commemorative King’s coronation medal to mark the occasion - available to those who meet the eligibility criteria.
