As one of the oldest working mints in the world, the British Royal Mint produced coins for a plethora of regal dynasties throughout our 1,100-year history, including some of the most legendary monarchs to wear the crown. The British Monarchs Collection uniquely celebrates these iconic kings and queens by providing a numismatic snapshot of their reign through coin designs of yesteryear.
Utilising genuine historical samples coupled with state-of-the-art technology and numismatic processes, our master craftspeople have faithfully recreated these classic designs just as they would have appeared during each monarch’s respective reign.
This innovative, five-year series will feature 21 monarchs in total, featuring iconic kings and queens from four royal houses: Tudor, Stuart, Hanoverian and Windsor, formerly known as Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Each year will see the launch of several new coins, released sequentially in January, March, June and September*.
Whilst the designs remain true to the originals, the coins in this new collection are finished to Proof standard, which provides a clearly defined finish that accentuates the details and enhances the overall aesthetic of each one. Available struck in 999.9 gold or 999 fine silver, the first release in the range celebrates Henry VII. Featuring a Tudor design, it is available in a variety of sizes, ranging from one ounce to five-ounce editions.
