Years of issue:
To celebrate the wedding of Charles and Diana in July 1981, the Royal Mint produced a commemorative crown tariffed at 25 pence, although no denomination was actually inscribed on the coin. For the first time, three people were portrayed on a British coin simultaneously; the reverse featuring the conjoined profiles of the bridal couple. Although the marriage produced two sons, Princes William and Harry, it sadly ended in divorce - a tragedy that was further compounded by the death of Diana in 1997.
