UK 1981 Charles and Diana's Wedding 25p Crown

Before £5 coins, major Royal events and national celebrations were marked by The Royal Mint with Crown Coins - struck to the exact same specification as today's £5 coins.

And to celebrate the wedding of Charles and Diana in July 1981, The Royal Mint produced a commemorative crown tariffed at 25 pence, although no denomination was actually inscribed on the coin.

For the first time, three people were portrayed on a British coin simultaneously; the reverse featuring the conjoined profiles of the bridal couple – His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.

This historic UK coin was one of just four decimal crown coins ever to be struck.
