Buckingham Palace recently announced that HRH The Duke of Edinburgh will perform his final duty on 2nd August before retiring from public life after an incredible 70 years of service to the Queen, the United Kingdom, British Isles and the Commonwealth.
Brand new portrait fully approved by Buckingham Palace
To commemorate this record breaking achievement, a limited edition British Isles Silver Proof £5 Coin will be released featuring a brand new portrait of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, which has been fully approved by Buckingham Palace and Her Majesty.
Each coin is expertly struck in 925/1000 Silver to a pristine Proof finish, the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. Proof coins are produced using specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish.
Your coin comes presented in a deluxe wooden presentation case along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Just 995 issued worldwide
Of special note for this issue is its very low edition limit of only 995. The popularity of the Royal family has never been higher, so a full sell-out is expected, especially considering the British Isles coin issued to mark Prince Philip’s 95th birthday with the same edition limit completely SOLD OUT in just a couple of weeks.
