As the nation mourns the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, many will reflect that his was a life well lived. Prince Philip was exiled from Greece as a young prince and found a new home in the United Kingdom, a wife he adored, and a family that he cherished.
“On behalf of everyone at The Royal Mint, I’d like to express our great sadness and heartfelt condolences at the passing of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
The Royal Mint had a long and close relationship with The Duke of Edinburgh as he served as President of The Royal Mint Advisory Committee (RMAC) between 1952 and 1999.
During this period the Committee he chaired approved the Coronation Medal, the coins needed for decimalisation, and four coinage portraits of Her Majesty The Queen.
The thoughts of all of us at The Royal Mint are with the Royal Family at this difficult time.”
Anne Jessopp, Chief Executive of The Royal Mint
