A stunning new limited edition commemorative gold plated coin, celebrating the life of Princess Diana
The 25g coin is gilded in pure gold, and features a specially selected colourised image of Diana - The People's Princess.
Taken in Vancouver, Canada during a 1986 Royal Tour, the image is of Diana in an elegant white dress and glittering tiara.
The tiara in question is known as the Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot, a stunning piece which includes 38 drop-shaped pearls. It became a favourite of Diana's, and would soon became frequently associated with her.
In this coin's image, at just 25 years old, she exhibits all the beauty and elegance that would characterise her life.
The People's Princess
2017 marks the twentieth anniversary of a great tragedy - the untimely death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Her life was dedicated to compassion and charity work. She was an early champion of victims of the AIDs crisis, and threw her support behind causes such as drug addiction and the homeless. Her down-to-earth charms and dedication to helping others distinguished her as a princess of the people.
It is unsurprising, therefore, that her death shocked the world, and sparked an enormous outpouring of grief. Television coverage of Diana's funeral was watched by an astonishing 2 billion people, in 200 countries around the globe, and thousands lined the streets of London on the day of her funeral.
