DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES 2017 – FRACTIONAL SOVEREIGN SET OF 3
In 1997, the world mourned the sudden loss of Diana. Style icon, devoted mother and a prolific human rights campaigner, the Princess of Wales is among the most famous and influential women of the 20th century.
To mark the 20th Anniversary of her passing, this new limited-edition tribute to the ‘People’s Princess’ has been issued. Struck in 22ct Gold to the most impressive Proof finish, these coins feature a beautiful new design by famous British numismatic sculptor, Michael Guilfoyle.
Appearing on the obverse of these Princess of Wales Gold coins is an official portrait of Her Majesty who commemorates a number of important milestones in 2017, including 65 years as Queen. Most recently, as part of the official celebrations for her 91st Birthday, our longest- serving Sovereign attended the spectacular ‘Trooping the Colour’ Parade with Diana’s beloved sons, Prince William, second in line to the throne, and his younger brother, Harry.
