Charlie portrait, and mintage - how soon?

I wonder if any country will issue firstly the Queen on coins then change part way through the year to Charles?

I would think that to be unusual in more modern times. I can't speak for Commonwealth countries.

Consider: Victoria, George V and George VI all died very early in the year. Yet the next monarch's coins did not appear until the year after (even Edward VIII was scheduled for 1937).

That's not to say it hasn't happened a little earlier in history.

Years straddling two monarch issues are:

1685, 1702, 1714, 1727 and 1820.

I'd think as it's September already, by the time the mourning period is over and the dies etc. are made, it'd be heading to 2023 anyway, might as well wait.

As an interesting side note, they've only just completed the BOE banknote redesign, the old paper £20 and £50 notes are still current until the end of this month. Not sure what they'll do there, start a redesign so soon or wait until the mid-20s?

Here is a suggested design we posted a few months ago:

At the time, there was some uncertainty about whether he would take the name King Charles III, or an alternative.

😎

But will the RM use the Latin version of the name - CAROLVS III ??  After all, previously it was GEORGIVS VI.

Atkinsons, as in the dark as the rest of us:

On the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we are currently working with the Royal Mint to clarify the situation with stock and will update our website shortly

They might well be running with this design again for Camilla.

Always cast your vote - Spoil your ballot slip. Put 'Spoilt Ballot - I do not consent.' These votes are counted. If you do not do this you are consenting to the tyranny. None of them are fit for purpose. 
A tyranny relies on propaganda and force. Once the propaganda fails all that's left is force.

COVID-19 is a cover story for the collapsing economy. Green Energy isn't Green and it isn't Renewable.
