Silver Ounce 2023 King Charles III Coronation, Coin from New Zealand
CoinSilver Ounce 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 internationally popular one ounce of silver format (abbreviated as 1 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 1oz silver proof coin has been created to commemorate this momentous occasion.

Obverse
New Zealand / Silver Ounce 2023 King Charles III Coronation - obverse photo

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 1oz" means "one troy ounce 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 wearing civilian clothes, signifying His Majesty’s everyday duties and role as a royal ambassador. 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. The intricate background pattern is inspired by the embroidery on the collar of the Scots Guard uniform.

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

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.
