2008 Charles Prince Of Wales 60th Birthday Five Pound Gold Proof Coin

from
£2,350.00
(VAT Exempt)
916.7 gold proof Five Pound coin issued to mark King Charles III's 60th birthday in 2008. Back then he was the Prince of Wales and the longest-serving heir apparent in history. Charles made this role his own, taking on extensive charity work and championing important causes. Alongside founding The Princes Trust (which is celebrated on the commemorative Crown released for his fiftieth birthday), the Prince also acts as patron or president for around four hundred additional charities and organisations. He took an early interest in the issue of climate change and the destruction of habitats and rainforests. This official UK Five Pound coin was released by The Royal Mint to mark the Prince's birthday and comes in its original presentation packing from The Royal Mint. An enclosed booklet which doubles as a certificate of authenticity contains information about Charles' life and work. The coin's reverse shows a one-off portrait of the Prince by Ian Rank-Broadley, created especially for the coin. The same artist created the effigy on the coin's obverse of Her Majesty The Queen, Charles' mother. This portrait was used on UK coins between 1998 and 2015. The edge is inscribed with the words 'SIXTIETH BIRTHDAY' along with the Price of Wales' feathers. This pre-owned and highly-collectable £5 coin is struck in 39.94 grams of 22-carat gold with a fine proof finish, protected by the original clear capsule. It's one of just 867 issued in an individual presentation from an already limited maximum issue of just 1,500. An early representation of the new King on British coinage.
