English Royal Crown

This page is specially made not to excuse monarchy nor to criticize or make fun of it (a republic of United Kingdom will exist in your foolishest dreams) but merely to inform passionates of worldly coins that the obverse of every coin of the countries being part of the Commonwealth, to begin with England, will for sure represent in the future the profile of Queen Elizabeth II's inheritors, who are Charles of Windsor and his eldest son William.


Charles of Windsor

Prince of Wales

English Crown of the Prince

Born in 1948





Badge of the Prince of Wales

Prince of Wales' motto is "ICH DIEN", which means "I serve"






Crest of the Prince Charles

Charles Philip Arthur Georges of Windsor, son of Elizabeth II of Windsor Queen of United Kingdom and the Prince Philip Mountbatten Duke of Edinburgh,was born on November 14th, 1948.

For the title of “ King of 2000”, you're done Charlie !

He may be King under the name of George VII.

You can see below a commemorative coin, struck by the British Royal Mint for Prince Charles' sixtieth birthday. When the Prince becomes a King (as late as possible, may we wish, respectfully to the Queen), the obverse of the United Kingdom coins will be struck in the effigy of Charles. It will sensibly look like the reverse below, already very well engraved by Ian Rank-Broadley (IRB).

See the reverse in bigger size



Prince William

Heir's English Crown

Born in 1982



Crest of the Prince William

William Arthur Philip Louis of Windsor, son of Charles of Windsor, Prince of Wales, and Diana Spencer, was born on June 21st, 1982.

He may reign under the name of William V.

Below, a Royal Mail stamp, appeared in 2003, specially for William's 21th birthday.
