“Cypher” also adorns mailboxes
This is what King Charles’ monogram looks like

The “ER” monogram of the late Queen Elizabeth II is still ubiquitous in Britain: on letters, for example. Gradually, however, it is exchanged for the symbol of the new king.
It is a symbol that will visually mark the new era of the United Kingdom: Buckingham Palace has the official monogram of King Charles III. presented. It consists of a C for Charles, an R for “Rex” (Latin for “king”), the number III in the letter R and the symbol of the crown.
The post office at Buckingham Palace plans to frank the first letter with the new monogram this Tuesday. The office handles about 200,000 postal items from the Palace every year, including many invitations or answers to greeting cards or letters. The monogram, called “Cypher” in English, will also appear on government agencies, government documents and mailboxes in the coming months and years.
However, it will probably be a long time before the “ER” monogram of Charles’ late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, disappears from the image of British cities. The monogram is only gradually replaced, for example if letterboxes are exchanged anyway.
The first banknotes depicting the new King Charles III. will not enter circulation in the UK until mid-2024, the Bank of England announced on Tuesday. The portrait will be presented at the end of this year. The British central bank has announced that the effigy of the monarch will be printed on new £5, £10, £20 and £50 notes. Otherwise, “no further changes would be made”. The old banknotes depicting the Queen will remain in circulation and will only be withdrawn if damaged in order to “minimize the environmental and financial impact of the change of kings” at the request of the royal family.
