The Duke of Cambridge, HRH Prince William, is the second in line to the throne and the elder son of The Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales.
In 2022, the year that marks Prince William’s 40th birthday, The Royal Mint has issued a brand new £5 coin.
Significantly, this is the first ever UK coin to be solely dedicated to The Duke, with a design by engraver, Thomas T. Docherty capturing the prince’s likeness in exquisite detail.
The perfect addition to any royal collection, issued in honour of a much-loved prince and future King, you can now secure your 2022 UK Prince William 40th Birthday £5 and preserve this significant moment in British royal history for generations to come.
Whilst this is the only coin to be solely dedicated to HRH Prince William, he has been commemorated on two previous £5 coins…
2011 Royal Wedding £5
This £5 coin was issued to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on 29th April 2011.
The reverse bears the officially approved portraits of the couple and is only the sixth time in history that a double portrait has appeared on British coinage.
The designer, Mark Richards FRBS, was chosen in an invitation only process and describes his depiction of the couple as ‘a feeling that pervades all the photographs I have seen of the couple together’.
The image is taken from one of their first official engagements together.
2018 Four Generations of Royalty £5
This Four Generations of Royalty £5 coin was highly anticipated since the moment HRH Prince George of Cambridge was born on 22nd July 2013.
This was the first time ever that The Royal Mint had issued a coin that celebrated all four generations of royalty in line to the throne on a single coin.
The reverse features an original design by much-loved calligrapher Timothy Noad, and ornately shows the initials of the current four generations, E, C, W, G, and represents the heritage of the House of Windsor.
Born to be King
The Duke of Cambridge has been second in line to the throne, since his birth in 1982. From a young age, he possessed a desire to undertake charitable activities and projects.
Alongside his efforts in promoting the welfare of those who are serving or who have served their country in the Armed Forces, Prince William’s charitable efforts expand into global affairs.
Protecting the natural environment for future generations is one of Prince William’s key priorities. His Highness supports wildlife conservation initiatives and even led key programmes to end illegal wildlife trafficking on a global scale.
In October 2020, His Royal Highness launched ‘The Earthshot Prize’ designed to incentivise change and help to repair our planet over the next 10 years.
The Duke of Cambridge is also committed to helping children and young people. From convening a new industry-led taskforce to combat online bullying, to publically highlighting youth-engaging programmes, Prince William is dedicated to making a difference in young people’s lives.
In the year that marks HRH Prince William’s 40th birthday, we can celebrate his achievements in raising awareness of these important issues.
