There is new coin of the realm in the U.K.
The Royal Mint has rolled out the first coinage to feature the face of the newly-minted King.
First into the market is a 50-pence coin, expected to be full circulation by December.
The image of Charles was approved by the new King himself before being pressed into the coins.
In keeping with tradition, Charles’ portrait faces left, the opposite direction his mother faced during her reign.
