A Royal Wedding for the Ages
Save the date with this commemorative gold proof £5 coin
The Royal Mint is delighted to release this special commemorative £5 coin, in celebration of the wedding of HRH Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. Their engagement was confirmed on 27 November 2017, after a seemingly ordinary night in took an unexpected turn when Prince Henry got down on one knee, ring in hand, with a special question to ask. Shocked and delighted, Meghan didn’t let him finish, accepting his proposal immediately. The culmination of a royal romance for the ages, we are delighted to join the well-wishers around the world.
The crown is a coin traditionally associated with marking royal occasions. Captured in proof finish, this 22 carat gold coin features an original portrait by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark. Granted a sitting with Prince Harry and Meghan at Kensington Palace, the portrait captures the relaxed intimacy between the royal couple. Approved by Buckingham Palace, it’s the perfect way to save the date and share memories of the big day.
