Coins featuring King Charles unveiled

New coins featuring the portrait of King Charles have been revealed, with a 50p carrying his image entering general circulation within weeks.

The 50p and a commemorative £5 Crown which include an image of the King by British sculptor Martin Jennings.

The coins follow centuries of tradition with the monarch now facing left – the opposite way to his predecessor.

As with previous British kings, and unlike the Queen, he wears no crown.

King Charles personally approved the effigy, and was understood to be pleased with the likeness.
