A Piedfort Coin Celebrates the 70th birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales 

Ever since The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976, The Prince of Wales has been well known for his wide range of philanthropic interests, from education and young people to environmental sustainability. As patron to over 400 charitable organisations, the busy prince has demonstrated an enduring commitment to improving the lives of the British people. Now in his 70th year and set to take on an increasing number of royal duties, The Prince of Wales shows little sign of slowing down!

To honour a lifetime of dedication to the British nation, The Royal Mint has struck the only official UK coin to celebrate The Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday. Featuring a reverse portrait of the prince by experienced coin designer Robert Elderton, this sterling silver piedfort coin is finished to Proof standard and is twice the weight of a standard £5 coin. Limited to just 1000 editions, the coin is presented alongside a booklet exploring The Prince of Wales’ life so far and is a fantastic way to round off what has been an incredible year of royal celebration.
