On Saturday 6 May we join the nation in celebrating the coronation of King Charles III. At the age of 73, His Majesty became the oldest British monarch to accede to the throne, having been the longest serving heir apparent. His accession to the throne on 8 September 2022 marked a new era in British history and in October 2022 news of the official coin effigy of King Charles III for the Royal Mint was revealed with the release of the new official 50p coins. The effigy of our new monarch was created by renowned British sculptor Martin Jennings FRSS. Here Dreweatts Managing Director, Jonathan Pratt, sits down with Martin to discuss his Royal commissions.
