Marking 70 Years of a Pioneering Prince, Captured in Platinum
When The Prince of Wales was formally invested as a young man, the nation saw the first signs of a personal connection to the British people and desire to make a difference. The Prince’s Trust was founded just 7 years later in 1976 with the aim to help disadvantaged young people, and it has gone on to help countless people in the UK and Commonwealth. The Prince of Wales is now active across a broad range of charitable endeavours, inspiring future generations with his work on sustainability, the environment, and much more.
Now celebrating his 70th birthday, the prince continues to support Her Majesty The Queen as her representative, demonstrating an enduring commitment to duty above all else. Join us in marking this personal milestone moment, in a year that has brought so many occasions to celebrate royal achievement. This platinum Proof quarter-ounce coin features a new portrait of the prince created by engraver Robert Elderton and is the only official UK coin to mark the 70th birthday of the prince. Presented alongside a booklet exploring his life so far, this edition is available in strictly limited numbers.
