What Is a Proof Coin?

A proof coin is a type of coin that is produced using a specific minting process that results in a highly polished surface and intricate design details. The coins are designed for collectors and investors who are interested in a high-quality product that showcases superior craftsmanship and minting quality.

Proof coins are typically produced in limited quantities and may feature unique packaging, certificates of authenticity, or other distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from standard coins. Due to their limited production and exceptional finish, proof coins generally command higher prices than regular coins of the same denomination and are highly prized by both collectors and investors.

Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral on 8th September 2022. The news broke around 6:30pm BST as messages of condolences from world leaders flooded in.

The state funeral took place at Westminster Abbey on Monday 19th September. She was laid to rest at St. George's Chapel, alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and her sister, Princess Margaret.

King Charles III

Upon the death of his mother, the crown automatically passed to Prince Charles, who assumed the title of King Charles III.

The Accession Council proclaimed him king on Saturday 10th September 2022. His coronation will not be held until 2023.  

Obverse

The obverse features the new portrait of King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings. The text reads:

CHARLES III ∙ DEI ∙ GRA · REX ∙ FID ∙ DEF · 

Reverse

Designed by artist, Jody Clark, the reverse features a new depiction of the Royal Coat of Arms. This highly detailed design pays a fitting tribute to the late monarch. It is notably different from Timothy Noad's version, which appeared on the first version of the 2022 proof sovereign

The Royal Arms consist of a quartered shield of the United Kingdom held by two supporters, the lion of England and the unicorn of Scotland. The shield is surmounted by a royal crown, topped by a golden lion. 

The Order of the Garter, reading 'HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE' is just visible behind the shield. This French motto is roughly interpreted as “EVIL BE TO HIM WHO EVIL THINKS THEREOF”. 

An intricate pattern appears in the background, with the floral emblems of England (rose), Scotland (thistle) and Ireland (shamrock) in the lower field. 

At the bottom of the design, the motto "DIEU ET MON DROIT", meaning "GOD AND MY RIGHT" can be found, with the date '2022'.
