Royal Mint & Heritage Auctions partner on monarch collection

The British Royal Mint, one of the world’s oldest continuously operating mints, has partnered with the Texas-based Heritage Auctions for a multi-year numismatic series dubbed the British Monarchs Collection.

Beginning in 2022 and running through fall 2026, the Royal Mint will strike the new series of one-ounce gold coins to honour the royal houses and their distinct numismatic portraiture. Heritage, an official Royal Mint distributor, will exclusively offer the coins to its clients over the next four years.

With 21 different issues, the collection is slated to highlight the coins of every ruler from the royal houses of the Tudors, Stuarts, Hanoverians and Saxe-Coburg & Gotha & Windsor.

“The series will allow one to trace the evolution of British minting techniques and artistic style over the last half millennium from the hammered coinage of Henry VII in the 15th century to where we are today with the coins of Queen Elizabeth II, struck with the most cutting-edge technology,” according to a statement from Heritage.

From the Tudors, Henry VII (1485-1509) graces the collection’s first coin, which was released in January. James I and VI of Scotland (1603-25), from the Stuarts, will be released in March followed by George I (1714-27), from the Hanoverians, in June and Edward VII (1901-10), from Saxe-Coburg & Gotha & Windsor, in September.
