The Royal Mint has unveiled eight 2024 reverse coin designs - officially known as definitives - inspired by flora and fauna found across Britain, the four nations of the United Kingdom, and reflecting King Charles III’s passion for conservation and the natural world.

In 2023, the eight new coin designs replaced the shield formation introduced under Queen Elizabeth II in 2008.

Unifying the coins is a unique repeating pattern featuring three interlocking C’s. This aspect of the design takes its inspiration from history and the cypher of Charles II, while the flora and fauna look to the future and the importance of the natural world.

The edge inscription of the £2 coin was chosen by His Majesty and reads ‘IN SERVITIO OMNIUM’, Latin for ‘In the service of all’.

The official coinage portrait of His Majesty, created by British sculptor Martin Jennings, features on the obverse of each 2024 definitive coin.

The designs are:
The £2 coin features flora that symbolise the four nations of the country – a rose for England, a daffodil for Wales, a thistle for Scotland and a shamrock for Northern Ireland. The edge inscription reads ‘IN SERVITIO OMNIUM’, which is Latin for ‘In the service of all’.
The £1 coin features a depiction of a bee, symbolising the 250+ species which exist in Britain.
A priority conservation species, the Atlantic salmon features on the 50p coin.
The unmistakable puffin features on the reverse of the new definitive 20p coin.
Found in a small part of Scotland, the capercaillie is the world’s largest grouse and features on the reverse of the 10p coin.
The 5p coin displays a leaf taken from an oak tree, signifying its role as a rich habitat for biodiversity in British woodland areas.
The red squirrel’s distinctive coloring blends perfectly with the reddish hue of the 2p coin.
Small in stature, the hazel dormouse is a fitting presence on the 1p coin.

Accompanied by fold-out packaging that offers further insight into the new coin designs.
