A Tribute to HRH The Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday, Struck in 22 Carat Gold

For more than 50 years, The Prince of Wales has been dedicated to representing Her Majesty The Queen at official occasions in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and overseas. With a continued commitment to protecting and preserving the traditions and interests of the British people, he has become the longest serving heir apparent in British history. Now, as his 70th birthday brings what has been an incredible year for royal celebrations to a close, we mark this significant personal milestone with a commemorative gold crown struck for the occasion.

Engraver Robert Elderton has created a new portrait of the prince for the reverse, which is paired with the official portrait of Her Majesty The Queen on the obverse. Perfectly capturing the prince in his 70th year, the coin is also year-dated, marking the coin’s place in time. Struck in 22 carat gold to Proof standard, the coin is presented in a classic Royal Mint box for safekeeping.
