Royal mail is also changing: the first coins with a portrait of Charles are presented

Great Britain receives new coins: instead of his mother, King Charles III. be visible. With the new embossing, sculptor Jennings has kept to the traditions. However, even Queen Elizabeth II is not completely disappearing from the British currency.

The UK Mint minted the effigy of King Charles III. revealed, which will appear on British coins in the future. It is the work of British sculptor Martin Jennings and was personally commissioned by Charles.

The first coins to feature the new king's effigy are a 5 pound commemorative coin and a 50 pence coin commemorating the life of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. They are slated to go into circulation "in the coming months," likely in December, according to the Royal Mint. Jennings said he designed Charles's portrait from a photo. It is the smallest work he has ever completed. It makes him humble when he imagines that people all over the world will see it and hold it in their hands for centuries to come.

According to tradition, Charles is looking to the left while his mother is looking the opposite way on the coins. The new coins bear the Latin inscription: "King Charles III, by the Grace of God, Protector of the Faith". Two new portraits of the Queen will appear on the reverse of the £5 commemorative coin. Elizabeth II died on September 8 after 70 years on the British throne. According to the Royal Mint Museum, no other British monarch features on as many coins as they do.

In addition, the first letters in the Court Post Office at Buckingham Palace were franked with the King's new lettering. This was announced by Buckingham Palace. The lettering is the monarch's monogram, consisting of the first letter of his name combined with an 'R' for Rex (Latin for king) or Regina (Latin for queen).

The first postal stamp bearing the royal script dates from 1901 and was introduced by Edward VII, who was instrumental in establishing the Royal Post Offices at Buckingham Palace. The lettering was introduced at a time when the monarch was seen by very few people to create identity.
