Gold Two Ounces 2023 British Monarchs - King Henry VIII, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Two Ounces 2023 British Monarchs - King Henry VIII

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 design is the fifth release in a Royal Mint series dedicated to the history of British monarchy and the monarchs of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom, and features Henry VIII (1509 - 1547). This is the first release in the series to feature the portrait of King Charles III on the obverse.

The Royal Mint says about it:
The latest release in our British Monarchs Collection explores the life and reign of King Henry VIII, the second monarch from the House of Tudor. The portrait on the reverse of this 2023 coin revisits an original coinage portrait of the king that circulated during Henry VIII’s reign, a portrait that saw him become known as "Old Coppernose".

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.

Reverse
United Kingdom / Gold Two Ounces 2023 British Monarchs - King Henry VIII - reverse photo

Within a beaded border with uneven rim, imitating a hammered coin, the reverse of the coin depicts the crowned bust of Henry VIII of England facing the viewer.

Around, in Medieval lettering, the inscription HENRIC VIII DI GRA REX AGL FRA Z HIB REX, preceded by a French fleur-de-lis and a mint mark in the shape of a heart topped with a cross.

The legend is in Latin, and means "Henry the Eighth, by the Grace of God, King of England, France and Ireland".
