CoinSilver Five Ounces 2023 King Charles III Coronation

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar as its circulation currency for daily transactions. The country also issues a number of commemorative and collector coins, including in the large five ounces of silver format (abbreviated as 5 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). Authorised by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the official issuer of these coins is NZ Post - which also issues the country's postal stamps. Manufacturing of the coins is commissioned to various foreign mints.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their intrinsic value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.

This silver coin was issued to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III in 2023. It features an obverse with a portrait of the king developed especially for the New Zealand coin series marking the occasion.

NZ Post says about the coin:
For almost a thousand years, each monarch of Britain, and later New Zealand, has been crowned in a special ceremony months after their accession. A coronation is an important day in the history of the nation, a vibrant shared experience for the public, and an occasion of deep personal significance in the life of the monarch. A 5oz silver proof coin has been created to commemorate this momentous occasion.

The obverse of the coin shows the bare (uncrowned) head of King Charles III facing left.

In small letters below the neck truncation, the artist's initials: SJF (for Stephen Fuller).

Around, the monarch's legend and date of issue: CHARLES III · NEW ZEALAND 2023.

The inscription also indicates the precious metal content - ".999 Ag 5oz" means "five troy ounces of 99.9% silver"; Ag is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver.

The reverse of the coin features a coloured portrait of King Charles III in his Queen’s Guard uniform. The circular gold background is symbolic of His Majesty's medals, and the intricate pattern is inspired by the embroidery on the collar of the Scots Guard uniform. The surrounding design is inspired by the gold aiguillette worn by the military, typically as part of ceremonial attire for special events, or in recognition of an honour or achievement.

Around above in a ring surrounding the portrait, the inscription KING CHARLES III CORONATION; around below, the face value FIVE DOLLARS.

On both sides of the ring, the royal cypher C III R (from Charles III Rex - Charles the Third, King), crowned with the Tudor Crown.
