Accession of King Charles III 5oz Gold
After serving as the longest heir apparent in history to his mother Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles III ascended to the throne on the 8th of September 2022. Now head of the UK and Commonwealth, His Majesty hopes to follow the inspiring example he has been set by his late mother. Born November 14, 1948, during the reign of his grandfather King George VI, Charles seemed destined to lead an extraordinary life. With a rigorous education, a distinguished military career, and now King of England, His Majesty has reached his zenith overseeing a modernised monarchy.
The reverse, designed by acclaimed coin designer Jody Clark, illustrates King Charles III in a left-facing portrait. The obverse bears the Coat of Arms for the Central Bank of Malta. In the eyes of the monarchy, the island of Malta has always been a place of pride, love and significance. Its pivotal military roles, its accommodation of Princess Elizabeth in the early 1950s and its continued support of the Commonwealth make it a fitting obverse for King Charles III.
