Dawn of a new coinage era

The official Commonwealth Effigy of His Majesty King Charles III was created by Welsh illustrator and coin designer Dan Thorne. Approved by the King as a true reflection of His Majesty’s character, the likeness rests upon the talented artist’s careful examination of past coins and medals, coupled with extensive study of the new monarch and his accomplishments. 

Classic kangaroo design

The coin features classic reverse artistry portraying a bounding kangaroo surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight. As well as the weight, purity and year-date, the design includes a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary in 2024.
