Buy a 1981 Royal Wedding Prince Charles And Princess Diana Twenty Five Pence Crown Silver Proof

The wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales took place at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29 July 1981. Attended by foreign royals and heads of state and watched on TV by an estimated 750 million, the ‘fairytale wedding’ was a cause for jubilation in the UK and across the Commonwealth. To celebrate the wedding of the century, The Royal Mint struck a special commemorative Crown coin bearing a double portrait of the bride and groom by Philip Nathan. It’s a contemporary and instantly recognisable depiction of Charles and Diana. This is paired with Arnold Machin’s third definitive portrait of the groom’s mother, Her Majesty the Queen, to the obverse. The face value of a Crown coin in 1981 was Twenty Five Pence, prior to the denomination being re-tariffed in 1990 to Five Pounds. Like later issues, however, this 1981 Crown is struck in 28.28 grams of .925 sterling silver and has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. It’s offered in its original velvet presentation box from The Royal Mint and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
