Charles’ 1st Coin 50p.Chris Ratcliffe Bloomberg

The Royal Mint has unveiled its first new coin featuring King Charles III, denominated at 50 pence. He faces left while his mother always faced right; by tradition kings do not wear a crown. The sculptor, Martin Jennings, said, “It is the smallest work I have created, but it is humbling to know it will be seen and held by people around the world for centuries to come.” (Chris Ratcliffe/Bloomberg News)
