This is the 5 Pound Commemorative Coin for the Coronation of Charles III, struck by The Royal Mint in Brilliant Uncirculated quality. This keepsake comes in a representative collector's box with all official accessories. In it you will find all numismatic details and all kinds of interesting information about the coronation of King Charles III. On obverse you will see the portrait of the king surrounded by the text "F · D · 5 POUNDS ·2023 · CHARLES III · D · G · REX". The king wears the Tudor crown - which was destroyed around 1640, but still occasionally appears on effigies of British monarchs. The reverse shows some of the royal regalia traditionally associated with the coronation ceremony. In the centre is St Edward's crown, traditionally used to crown English and British monarchs since the 13th century. Next to the crown are the sovereign's sceptres. On the left, the sovereign's sceptre with cross, representing the sovereign's temporal power. On the right, the sovereign's sceptre with dove: the dove symbolises the Holy Spirit and the king's spiritual role as head of the Anglican Church. Along the top edge is the text "THE CORORNATION OF KING CHARLES III" with the date on which the coronation will take place "6 MAY 2023" underneath. The death of Queen Elizabeth II caused a stir in the UK and abroad. She was on the throne for over 70 years, making her one of the longest-serving monarchs ever. Following her death, 73-year-old Charles III became king of the UK with immediate effect. On Saturday 6 May 2023, official coronation ceremonies will take place at Westminster Abbey, where all coronations since 1066 have been performed. It is traditional in England to have a longer period of mourning after the death of a monarch, leading to the coronation of the heir to the throne not taking place until several months later.

The black stork is an unmistakable bird species. The adult has mainly black plumage with white underparts, long coral red legs and a long pointed beak. The beak and eye areas are the same colour as the legs, and the black plumage has an intense greenish-purple sheen. Adults weigh between around 2.4 kg and 3.2 kg. Black storks are distributed throughout most of Europe and Asia, and most forest areas of Slovakia are nesting sites for these birds. They typically nest in mature deciduous and mixed forests, preferring areas with wetlands and watercourses where they can forage for food. They select large trees with strong horizontal branches and show high fidelity to breeding sites and nesting trees. The base of the nest is formed by thick branches, while the interior is lined with twigs, clumps of grass, lichens and moss. The female lays two to four eggs. Both parents feed the fledglings by regurgitating food onto the nest floor. Black storks feed on smaller fish, amphibians, insects, gastropods, small mammals and small birds. They migrate to wintering grounds mainly in August and September. In Slovakia, the black stork is a protected species.
Obverse:
The obverse of the euro collector coin depicts a black stork hunting on a body of water. In the background is a tree with a stork’s nest. An adult stork is depicted flying towards a chick in the nest, carrying food in its beak. On the upper left side is the Slovak coat of arms and, above it, the year of issuance ‘2023’. On the right side is the mint mark of the Kremnica Mint (Mincovňa Kremnica), consisting of the letters ‘MK’ placed between two dies. Inscribed along part of the right edge is the name of the issuing country ‘SLOVENSKO’.

Reverse:
The reverse design depicts a black stork taking flight. To the right of this image are the denomination ‘5’ and currency ‘EURO’, one above the other. In the lower part of the design, next to the stork’s legs, are the stylised initials ‘MŠ’, referring to the coin’s designer Marie Šeborová. Inscribed along the lower edge and separated by a medial dot are the Slovak and scientific names for the black stork: ‘BOCIAN ČIERNY’ and ‘CICONIA NIGRA’.
