Perhaps the biggest rebranding in the world is underway as the UK gets to the task of replacing stamps, coins, banknotes and post boxes following the coronation of King Charles III. And it's not just the UK – around the world the image of Queen Elizabeth II is on the currency of at least 15 other countries.

First to see a change will be coins in the UK. They might seem one of the least important things to change considering how much a coin is worth today, but the Royal Mint has revealed its King Charles III coin designs. The internet has some questions, though, so we'll do our best to answer them below. Want to propose an alternative design? Make sure you have the best graphic design software for that.
