from
£4,250.00
One of just 70 issued in this limited edition presentation from The Royal Mint! This 99.5% platinum piedfort proof Five Pound coin celebrates Prince Charles' 70th birthday in 2018 with a new portrait of the Prince of Wales by Robert Elderton. Charles was born in 1948 and was the UK's longest-serving heir apparent, succeeding to the throne as King Charles III, following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in 2022. During his time as Prince of Wales, Charles was renown for his interests include climate change, heritage conservation, the arts and sustainable farming, as well as his own charity, The Prince's Trust which supports vulnerable young people. Elderton's portrait shows Charles wearing a jacket and tie, facing right: the opposite direction to his definitive coin portrait by Martin Jennings. Elderton also worked on the 50th birthday coin, struck by The Royal Mint in 1998. This 2018 design is paired with Jody Clark's fifth and final effigy of Her Majesty the Queen, wearing the Diamond Diadem. This piedfort commemorative Crown coin is struck in 94.20 grams of 999.5 fine platinum to proof standard. The diameter here - measured from plain edge to plain edge - conforms to the standard for £5 coins. Just 70 of these Prince Charles coins were released by UK's national mint in this presentation in 2018. This one is offered in its original presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. A remarkable modern collectors piece.
