On Tuesday, the Bank of England unveiled four banknotes with King Charles III's portrait on the front and a smaller cameo in the security window.
First-ever U.K. banknotes feature King Charles III.
On Tuesday, the Bank of England printed four banknotes (£5, £10, £20, and £50) with Charles' main portrait on the front and a tiny cameo inside the security window.
According to a Bank of England announcement, the notes will enter circulation in mid-2024 and retain the designs used for Queen Elizabeth.
Charles will share banknotes like Sir Winston Churchill (£5), Jane Austen (£10), JMW Turner (£20), and Alan Turing (£50).
Charles is the second monarch and first king to appear on a Bank of England note following his mother, who featured in 1960. (British and English monarchs have appeared on coins for over 1,000 years.)
