€50 gold coin celebrating Prince Philip
- May 13, 2021
While the Royal Mint of Great Britain has yet to officially announce a coin issue following the death of Prince Philip, the Central Bank of Malta has announced the issue of two gold bullion coins dedicated to him. The Central Bank of Malta, in collaboration with the Commonwealth Mint & Philatelic Bureau Ltd UK, wishes to issue 2 one-ounce gold coins, legal tender, commemorating His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
These coins will have the following specifications and mintages:
– 99 bullion coins with a face value of €50, weight 31.1gms, gold grade of 999/1000 in BE quality
– 49 bullion coins with a face value of 50€, weight 31.1gms, gold grade of 999/1000 in matte BE quality (sold out at the Central Bank of MALTA).
These coins are designed by artist Jody Clark, who also designed the official effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II that has appeared on Royal Mint coins since 2016.
The Central Bank of Malta will be making a very limited number of these gold BE coins available to its customers.
The Malta Coin Centre will offer you, on a first come first served basis, the opportunity to order one of the 10 available Bullion coins from this issue.
