The Only Official UK Coin Marking the 70th Birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales
The Prince of Wales was just four years old when his mother stepped into the role of queen and he became second in line to the throne. Since then, he has earned the title of longest serving heir apparent, demonstrating an unwavering sense of duty and representing Her Majesty The Queen in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and overseas for over 50 years. As an active philanthropist, The Prince of Wales’ commitment to improving the life of those in Britain and the Commonwealth has been a lifelong pursuit – one which will continue to benefit many future generations.
Now, as an extraordinary year of royal celebration draws to a close, we pay tribute to The Prince of Wales on his 70th birthday with a substantial commemorative crown – and the only official UK coin created to mark the milestone. A new portrait of the prince has been designed by Robert Elderton, an experienced engraver responsible for many memorable coins over the years, including the 40th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen's coronation in 1993. Struck in more than 94 grammes of platinum to Proof standard, and presented in a classic Royal Mint box for safekeeping, this year-dated coin is a superb addition to your royal collection.
