(CNN) – If you’re in the United Kingdom, you’ll soon see a new face in your pocket.
The first coins featuring King Charles III are now being minted.
The new 50-pence coins are set to hit general circulation by Christmas, alongside a commemorative five-pound coin with a portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
The king’s portrait will be displayed facing the left side of the coin, a stark change to the previous 50-pence coins with the queen’s portrait facing the right side.
