Gold Two Ounces 2023 Harry Potter - Albus Dumbledore, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Two Ounces 2023 Harry Potter - Albus Dumbledore

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The two ounce (2 oz) gold coins are denominated as Two Hundred Pounds (£200).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This gold two ounces coin denominated as £200 marks the 25th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - published on 26 June 1997. It is the third design in a series of four (each released in a number of coin formats).

"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" is the first in a series of seven fantasy novels (all later filmed) written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story concerns Harry's struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people).

Professor Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is one of the main characters in the series.

Engraved by Ffion Gwillim, the design is based on book illustrations by Jim Kay and not on the subsequent films.

Obverse
United Kingdom / Gold Two Ounces 2023 Harry Potter - Albus Dumbledore - obverse photo

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 · 200 POUNDS · 2023 ·. Translated from Latin, the legend means: Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith.

In the right field, a circle with a latent image which reveals the numeral 25 and a thunderbolt (referencing Harry Potter's thunderbolt-shaped scar) when viewed at an angle.

The date of issue and the face value are on the obverse.
