The UK Treasury has unveiled a new coin in memory of the life of Prince Philip, who died in April at the age of 99.
This is reported by the APxx agency.
The design of the 5-pound coin was approved by Philip in 2008. It shows the original portrait of Philip, painted by the artist Ian Rank-Broadley.
The coin is intended for collecting or donation, issued in a limited edition, and will not enter general circulation.
The coin was released on the market on the Day of the Armed Forces of Great Britain. Philip had a naval career behind him.
The coin will be available for purchase on the website of the Royal Mint, as well as in UK post offices and specialty stores around the world. The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, died on April 9 at the age of 99. According to the royal family, he died peacefully at Windsor Castle.
