The perfectly British tradition of creating and selling commemorative items to celebrate Royal weddings, coronations, and jubilees started in the early 19th century.
The earliest examples were porcelain, glassware, and medals marking the coronation of King George IV in 1821. Royal souvenirs then grew in popularity during the reign of Queen Victoria, the first monarch to have her portrait featured on items such as porcelain, silverware, and cards.
Since then, every momentous Royal occasion has been marked with commemorative souvenirs, from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011 and then HM’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
Today, Royal-souvenir-collecting is a recognised hobby, with plates, cups and saucers, spoons, commemorative coins, and figurines of Royal family members – some created by reputable British manufacturers – becoming highly sought after by collectors.
Nyetimber embraces this tradition with a limited-edition bottle of our signature cuvee celebrating the coronation of King Charles III: a tangible and lasting memory of a pivotal event in our country’s history, acting as a time capsule for future generations.
