What is a Brilliant Uncirculated Finish?

A Brilliant Uncirculated Finish is a type of coin finish that involves striking the coin twice to achieve greater definition and relief of the design. The blanks are machine-fed into the press, while the dies are polished and finished by hand. This type of finish falls between proof and uncirculated and is a good choice for collectors looking to obtain high-quality examples of the coin design.


This coin’s obverse side displays a newly crowned coinage portrait of King Charles III, facing leftward and designed by Martin Jennings in commemoration of His Majesty’s coronation. Additionally, the coin features the initials “MJ” and the inscription “CHARLES III · DEI · GRA · REX · FID · DEF.”


The reverse side of the coin, created by Benedetto Pistrucci, features the famous St. George and the Dragon design, which has been featured on sovereigns since 1817 (with some exceptions). The reverse side also includes an issue date and the initials of the engraver.
