Ultra-High Relief Sterling Silver Coin - H.R.H. The Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) (2011)

Description

Dealer listing
$109.95 CAD

Crafted in the ultra-high relief of ancient medallic art. Available only until August 31.

Highlights:
Rarely does a coin feature a royal effigy on both sides, but every coin in this magnificent series does. Each portrait has the raised edges normally seen on a sculpted military medal. Its ultra-high relief has been achieved by striking the coin an impressive four times followed by extensive refining and polishing—an intense hand-crafted process that produces a unique finish for each coin.

Coin designs:
The agreeable disposition of the Princes of Wales is unmistakable in three skilfully-crafted portraits, each one a remarkable likeness of Prince Harry, Prince William and The Prince of Wales (Prince Charles).

H.R.H. The Prince of Wales
(Prince Charles)

Prince Charles was born on November 14, 1948 and baptized Prince Charles Philip Arthur George. Much of his role involves supporting The Queen as a focal point for national pride; to embody stability; to inspire unity across all segments of society; and to promote the importance of volunteerism.

A legacy to last the ages.
More than any other monarchy, our Royal Family is arguably the most visible and best known worldwide and has played a significant role in Canadian life for centuries.

Throughout, the continuity of the crown has been of paramount importance, every king and queen contributing to the adaptability that has enabled their institution to survive. Today, the monarch’s role is vastly different from that of earlier sovereigns but it is woven with the strong threads of history; past glories that have the power to evoke a powerful sense of emotion and affection in a modern world.
