The Royal Mint issued a set of commemorative Five Pound coins in 2018 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Charles, Prince of Wales. This edition is the silver proof coin, stuck numerous times using polished dies to give an attractive finish. 2018 was an eventful year for the first-born son of Queen Elizabeth II and Price Philip, with the marriage of his son Prince Harry to Meghan Markle and the birth of his second grandson, Prince Louis. Prince Charles is the longest-serving heir apparent in British history, having waited over 70 years before ascending to the British throne in 2022. Unusually for this coin, Prince Charles is seen facing to the right on the reverse, whereas coins depicted with his effigy as King face to the left, which follows royal tradition. It was engraved by Robert Elderton and differs from the Martin Jennings engraving used on UK coins from 2022 onwards. The obverse shows Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Jody Clark. The specifications of the coin itself are a total weight of 28.28 grams, a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and a millesimal fineness of 0.925 (sterling silver). Just 3,500 coins are available in this limited edition presentation, with a maximum of 4,500 coins produced. You'll receive the certificate of authenticity and the original presentation box as standard. Included with the UK Crown coin is an informative coin folder with details about Prince Charles.
