1998 UK Prince Charles' 50th Birthday £5

To Celebrate Prince Charles’ 50th Birthday on 14th November 1998, The Royal Mint issued a special £5 commemorative coin.

The reverse of the coin was designed by Michael Noakes and Robert Elderton and features a portrait of Charles alongside a thirty-three word inscription of the aims and ideals of The Prince of Wales’ Trust.

This is the longest inscription to have ever been used on a British coin.

The Prince of Wales’ Trust is a charitable organisation established by Prince Charles to further the interests of young people.

The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Your £5 coin will arrive protectively encapsulated to present it for generations to come.

Order today to secure yours and avoid disappointment.
