Princess of Wales
New from Emgland
|The commemorative Five Pounds
coin is the first of four official memorials to be announced by the Diana, Princess of
Wales Memorial Committee. The Memorial Committee recommended an official United Kingdom
coin which would be welcomed as a simple and tasteful way in which many people, both here
and in many other countries, would wish to remember the Princess. Proceeds from the
sale of the coin will go towards funding memorials recommended by the Committee.
|The coin features an elegant portrait
of Diana in profile by David Cornell, FRBS and was one of a number of designs submitted to
the Royal Mint Advisory Committee, who approve all UK coin designs. The obverse (or
'head' side of the coin) displays the portrait of Her Majesty the Queen which appears on
all UK coins minted from January 1998 and is the work of the sculptor Ian Rank Broadley

received over 10,000 suggestions from people from all walks of life. I know
