On the 14th November 2018, HRH The Prince of Wales celebrated his landmark 70th birthday.
To mark this milestone and to honour his lifetime of dedication to the british people, an official commemorative UK £5 coin was issued by The Royal Mint.
The reverse features a portrait of the prince by widely respected engraver Robert Elderton, who was once an apprentice engraver at The Royal Mint at its previous home in Tower hill more than 50 years ago.
What makes this coin particularly interesting is that it is the last UK coin to feature the portrait of HRH as 'Prince' before he became King following the passing of his mother, the Queen, in 2022.
£5 coins are reserved for the most important Royal and Historical anniversaries, making this coin a special keepsake for any collector.
Your Prince of Wales 70th birthday £5 coin is struck to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality, and is protectively encapsulated.
Order today to secure yours and avoid disappointment.
This coin is no longer available from The Royal Mint, but you can secure the Brilliant Uncirculated issue today for just £24.99.
