Gold Ten Ounces 2022 In Memory of Queen Elizabeth II, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Ten Ounces 2022 In Memory of Queen Elizabeth II

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues collector coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The ten ounces (10 oz) gold coins are denominated as five hundred pounds (£500). This very large format is targeted at high-end investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art.

This coin was issued in memory of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in British history.

The Royal Mint says about the series:
On 8 September 2022, Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. For more than seven decades, Her Majesty upheld a promise she made in which she pledged her heart and devotion to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

Marking the historic succession from one monarch to another, the coins in the Memorial Coin Collection honouring Queen Elizabeth II are the first to feature King Charles III’s official coinage portrait designed by acclaimed sculptor Martin Jennings.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin displays the first definitive portrait of King Charles III, which shows his bare (uncrowned) head facing left.

Below the neck truncation in tiny letters, the artist's initials MJ (for Martin Jennings).

Around, the monarch's legend followed by the face value and date of issue: CHARLES III · D · G · REX · F · D · 500 POUNDS · 2022 ·. Translated from Latin, the legend means: Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith.
