King Charles to feature on notes and stamps as new monogram revealed

Bank notes, coins and stamps featuring the face of King Charles III have been announced alongside the unveiling of his Majesty's new monogram.

Images of updated banknotes featuring a portrait of the King will be revealed by the Bank of England by the end of this year. Coins and banknotes featuring King Charles III and Queen Elizabeth II will co-circulate, under the plans.

The Royal Mint said that coins bearing the effigy of the King will enter circulation in line with demand from banks and post offices, and will circulate alongside coins featuring the Queen “for many years to come”.

New banknotes featuring Charles are expected to enter circulation by mid-2024 and his portrait will appear on existing designs of all four denominations of banknote (£5, £10, £20 and £50).

Four stamps that feature portraits of the Queen will also released in her memory, the Royal Mail has announced.

Special Stamps will also feature a silhouette of the King.

The new stamps – the first set to be approved by King Charles III – will go on general sale from November 10 and will feature images of the late monarch through the years.
