1999 Princess Diana Memorial £5

Diana Frances Spencer married the Prince of Wales in July 1981. Although the Princess gave birth to two sons, William and Harry, the marriage was unstable and led to a legal separation in 1992 and divorce four years later.

Constantly the subject of a media frenzy, Diana died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997 while she and her friend Dodi Al Fayed were trying to escape the paparazzi. The world was stunned at her tragic death, and her funeral a few days later triggered grief all around the world.

The Royal Mint issued this memorial £5 coin in 1999 featuring Diana's profile on the reverse. 

Order Ref 185/937C/0
