‘Not for Himself but for his Country’

As His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh steps back from public duties, he can reflect on his record of achievement with a well-earned sense of pride. After a short but distinguished naval career, Prince Philip found a new purpose in life as a loyal consort to Her Majesty The Queen. For eight decades he has also devoted himself to hundreds of different causes, to inspiring young people, championing British design and engineering and campaigning tirelessly to protect the environment. He is also a former president of The Royal Mint Advisory Committee.

To recognise this enormous contribution, The Royal Mint has struck a £5 commemorative coin, struck in 925 sterling silver to Proof standard. This original design features one of the last commissions by highly respected designer Thomas ‘Humphrey’ Paget. The coin table has been worked on by Royal Mint coin designer Lee R. Jones to include a new inscription. It reads ‘NON SIBI SED PATRIAE’ in Latin, which means ‘Not for himself but for his country’.

A Shame

Rated 3 out of 5
07 August 2017

A shame this is not in Fine 999 Silver. Feel that Prince Philip deserves to be minted in the highest quality for the service he has given. yes I would love the gold version but out of my reach.

This aside i will be buying one.
