THE BRITISH MONARCHS COLLECTION
As one of the oldest working mints in the world, we have produced coins for a plethora of regal dynasties throughout our 1,100-year history, including some of the most legendary monarchs to wear the crown. The British Monarchs Collection uniquely celebrates these iconic kings and queens by providing a numismatic snapshot of their respective reigns through coin designs of yesteryear.
“From the early concept stages, we were looking at how we could reproduce these classic coins in a way that would faithfully match the style of the original. We didn’t want to make them appear too modern and approached the project from a viewpoint where we would try to produce a coin to the best quality possible at that point in history.”
Gordon Summers, Chief Engraver
