To celebrate the 70th Birthday of the Prince of Wales, the Royal Mint has issued the lovely Gold Proof £5 coin
The Prince is the longest serving heir apparent and supports the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as her representative. He has played an active roll over his many years of service, living up to his moto ‘Ich Dien’ meaning ‘I service’.
In 1976 the Prince created perhaps his most famous charity – The Prince’s Trust. This organisation helps disadvantaged young people, both in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
This lovely Five Pound Gold Proof coin comes complete with numbered certificate, box and cardboard outer.
