The British Monarchs Collection continues with a new addition to this innovative series dedicated to some of Britain’s greatest kings and queens. Building on the precedent set by the first coin in the series, the second release features another legendary royal with a design dedicated to James I – the Scottish king James VI who succeeded Elizabeth I to become king of England.

As a worthy successor in the series, the seventeenth-century monarch appears on this new coin in the same classic design that would have featured on the coins of the Jacobean era. Whilst the design first appeared on British coinage more than 400 years ago, this coinage portrait has been faithfully recreated as close to the original as possible using state-of-the-art technology.
