2005 - His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales 21st Birthday

This coin was issued to celebrate the 21st Birthday of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales (otherwise known as Prince Harry).

This is the first coin featuring the Prince ever to be minted and, like those issued for his brother Prince William's 21st birthday, have proved to be popular with collectors and members of the public alike.

The design, by Robert Elderton, is taken from an official photograph by George Bodnar, and features the Prince in an informal pose, wearing a jumper and an open necked shirt. The background features his personal coat of arms.

The obverse of the coin shows the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf.

This coin is now available as a £5 Cupro-Nickel coin either in a plastic case or in a presentation folder.
