This Gold Proof £5 coin (aka Quintuple Sovereign, or Crown) was issued in 1998 to celebrate Prince Charles' 50th Birthday. This coin is particularly uncommon. The Royal Mint set an issue limit of 2000 sets but only 773 were produced, with up to 100 more proof coins with special £50 notes produced too.

The obverse of this Gold Proof £5 coin features the third portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley, while on the back is a smaller portrait of Prince Charles, as designed by Michael Noakes and Robert Elderton. The initials MN and RE appear to the far right of the ribbon

The coin heavily refers to The Prince's Trust, which is inscribed in one of the ribbons, along with the phrase "HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE TO SUCCEED".

The following text appears alongside Charles' portrait:


This Gold Proof 1998 Five Pound coin is beautifully presented in a good-quality presentation case, and
comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
