Buy a 2008 Charles Prince Of Wales 60th Birthday Five Pound Crown Piedfort Platinum Proof Coin

One of just 54 issued by The Royal Mint! This piedfort platinum proof coin was struck to celebrate the 60th birthday of King Charles III 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 94.20 grams of 99.95% platinum with a fine proof finish, protected by the original clear capsule. It's one of just 250 issued in this presentation and has become particularly collectable since King Charles' accession.
