A highly-graded gold proof Five Pound coin, minted to commemorate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales.

In Memory of Princess Diana

Lady Diana Spencer joined the royal family in July 1981 when she married Prince Charles, the oldest son of Queen Elizabeth II. As Princess of Wales she was known for her charity work campaigning on behalf of AIDS patients and for the removal of landmines among other causes.

Her activism and glamorous lifestyle made her an icon but also brought public attention to the marriage breakdown which led to her 1996 divorce. Her tragic death in 1997 prompted extensive public morning.

This Royal Mint Five Pound coin was one of a number of public tributes to the People's Princess.

David Cornell's Portrait

The reverse of this gold coin features a right facing portrait of the Princess by David Cornell. An English artist and sculptor he also designed the 1998 NHS 50p and the 2010 Restoration of the Monarch £5.

It's an elegant, simple portrait, surrounded by the legend 'IN MEMORY OF DIANA PRINCESS OF WALES' with the denomination below and dates '1961' and '1997' to the right of the bust.

Cornell's portrait is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley's official effigy of Her Majesty the Queen which appears on the obverse.

A Collectible Graded Gold Coin

7,500 of these gold proof Five Pound coins were struck in 1999. Silver proof and cupronickel versions were also made available but the gold is the scarcest of this issue.

Composed of 22 carat gold, these commemorative Crowns contains 1.177 troy ounces of gold and have a diameter of 38.61 millimetres.

This example has been professionally graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation as PF 69 Ultra Cameo, indicating a great strike and nearly imperceptible imperfections. The 'Ultra Cameo' designation denotes deeply mirrored surfaces that contrast attractively with frosted devices.
