The British artist and sculptor Martin Jennings was tasked with designing the portrait of the new Sovereign that adorns this one ounce silver Britannia coin. To achieve this, he drew inspiration from numerous images of the King.

On this one ounce silver Britannia coin, the portrait of Charles III looks to the left and is without a crown, which represents a major departure from previous years, which depicted the Queen in her right profile, and crowned.

On the edge of the one ounce silver Britannia coin Charles III, you will find the inscriptions "CHARLES III D · G · REX · F · D" and "2 POUNDS" (the face value guaranteed by the Royal Mint).

Reverse (back) side of the 1 oz Britannia Charles III silver coin

The reverse of the one-ounce silver coin Britannia Charles III depicts, as the name suggests, Britannia. This female figure symbolizes the British nation, wearing a helmet and proudly holding a shield in her left hand and a trident in her right hand. The inscriptions "BRITANNIA 2023", "1 OZ", and "999.9 FINE SILVER" are engraved around the coin.

The design of the reverse is particularly intricate, with the fine details being the result of a technical feat that makes counterfeiting this silver coin extremely difficult. For example, there is a hologram in the bottom left corner and the barely visible inscription "Decus et Tutamen".
