My new British coin

Coins-World | Speeding Arrow

Yesterday I received a package containing a new coin I order. This coin was meant to represent the changing of the face of the obverse from Queen Elizabeth the 2nd to King Charles the 3rd. A new coin will be coming with Charles on the obverse. It is made of 1oz of fine silver and has a face value of 2 pounds. It also has a diameter of 38.61mm. These coins could easily be part of anyone's collection. Thanks to the Royal British Mint for some of the information. Some extra news is that I will be going to the national battlefield coin show on Saturday from 9-11 am. I will be taking a water bottle with a sticker from the ANA to show I am from there. Please attend this show if you can it is amazing and most of us are going. See you there!
