‘Not for himself but for his country’

After nearly 80 years of selfless and dedicated service to his country, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has retired from public duties. As he steps backs from the spotlight, The Royal Mint celebrates his extraordinary contribution to public life and people’s lives. From distinguished service at sea to his wholehearted support of Her Majesty The Queen as the longest serving consort, and from the life-changing Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to his leadership of hundreds of charities, Prince Philip’s record of service and achievement is unparalleled. To mark The Duke of Edinburgh’s official retirement and in recognition of his long association with The Royal Mint, we have struck a £5 coin in a Silver Proof Piedfort edition.
