Royal Mint piedfort £5 coin in platinum proof, celebrating Prince Philip's 90th birthday from a very limited edition of just 49 coins! In 2011, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh celebrated his 90th birthday, making him the longest-lived consort of any British monarch. To mark the occasion, The Royal Mint offered a collection of commemorative Five Pound coins, bearing a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II's husband by sculptor Mark Richards. It's an unusual close-up portrait which shows the Prince facing right. The legend surrounding this on a narrow rim reads: 'PRINCE PHILIP · 90TH BIRTHDAY · FIVE POUNDS · 2011'. Richard's portrait mirrors the right-facing portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley which appears to the obverse. It's the fourth official UK coin portrait of Her Majesty and was in use from 1998 to 2015. This extra-heavy piedfort Crown is struck in 94.20 grams of 99.95% fine platinum and has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. It has a legal tender value of £5 and is struck to a high-quality proof standard, superior to ordinary circulation coins found in your change. You'll receive your pre-owned 2011 platinum piedfort Prince Philip coin in its original box from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity as standard.
