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

2011 Royal Wedding £5 featuring design of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

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.

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.

120 Years of Mischief – the 2022 Peter Rabbit £5 just issued!

I can remember the very first time I was introduced to Peter Rabbit.

My grandmother, an avid Beatrix Potter fan, read me the tale of this mischievous little bunny rabbit one evening. From that point on, every time I went to stay with her, it would be the bedtime story I requested.

That’s the wonderful thing about The Tale of Peter Rabbit; it’s adored across generations.

From the original books, written in 1902, to the brand new £5 coin issued today, the nation continues to preserve Peter Rabbit’s legacy.

The UK’s FIRST Royal 50p – JUST ISSUED!

The day has finally arrived… The UK’s FIRST Royal 50p has JUST been issued! And, it’s got a very special obverse design – NEVER-before-seen on a 50p…

The 2022 UK Platinum Jubilee 50p is arguably the most significant coin of a lifetime, celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s incredible 70 years of service to the crown.

We’re so excited to bring you all of the important details, as well giving you the chance to secure it for your collections!

Keep reading to find out more…

2022 UK Platinum Jubilee 50p

2022 sees Her Majesty become the first monarch in British history to reach her Platinum Jubilee, so it’s only fitting that this moment has been captured for the very first time on the UK’s most collected coin!

And, this UK first also features new designs on BOTH the reverse and obverse!

Experienced coin artist John Bergdahl has created a stunning commemorative Jubilee portrait of Her Majesty on horseback, which is reminiscent of previous jubilee designs, including the 1953 coronation crown!

1953 Coronation Crown

Created by design agency Osborne Ross, the reverse features the number 70 in a striking centralized design, with the dates 1952 and 2022, beneath The Queen’s royal cypher.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this coin is one of the most exciting issues we’ve ever seen.

We’ve never-before-seen a UK 50p mark such a significant event and it’s only right that the UK’s first royal 50p, should feature such an exciting design.

This is also the first time that we’ve ever seen the portrait of Her Majesty on horseback feature on the 50p!

This is an absolute MUST-HAVE for collectors. If you need reminding why, here are my 3 top reasons to add this coin to your collection:

  1. This is the UK’s FIRST royal 50p – making it a numismatic first
  2. For the first time on the 50p, we’ve seen the portrait of Her Majesty on horseback feature on the obverse design
  3. Her Majesty is the FIRST British Monarch to reach her Platinum Jubilee – a milestone few of us will see again.

2022 UK Platinum Jubilee £5

As the perfect accompaniment to this stunning new 50p, The Royal Mint have also issued a brand new £5 coin to celebrate Her Majesty’s Jubilee.

Set to rival the collecting frenzy of the Queen’s first Jubilee Crown released in 1977, this brand new release features a design created especially for collectors.

In 1977, Her Majesty celebrated 25 years on the throne – her Silver Jubilee and the first of her reign. The Royal Mint issued this commemorative crown. The coin’s reverse design is focused upon the Coronation theme and features the Ampulla and anointing spoon from the Royal regalia surrounded by a heraldic floral pattern and the Crown.

The coin’s obverse takes inspiration from the 1953 Coronation Crown, showing a newly designed image of the Queen on horseback.

Unusually, this coin does not feature an edge inscription or date on its reverse, making it the only crown of its kind at the time of issue. It was also one of the last crowns to be issued with a face value of 25 pence (commemorative crowns issued after 1990 have a face value of £5), which makes it continually sought-after among collectors!

Reminiscent of the 1953 Coronation Crown, the 2022 Platinum Jubilee £5 features a special obverse design of the Queen riding on horseback – only found on the individual release of this coin!

The reverse design by John Bergdahl includes the Queen’s garter robes in a fitting tribute to her 70 years upon the throne.

As you’d expect with such a stunning issue, this coin will come struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, protectively encapsulated in Official Change Checker packaging.
