The British Treasury has released a new special edition of coins commemorating the life of Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in April at the age of 99.
On Saturday, Treasury Prince Philip approved the design of the 5 pound coin in 2008, which featured an original portrait of Philip by artist Ian Rank Bradley.

Although it is a legal tender, the coin is designed to be a limited edition collectible or gift, it will not be in public circulation, and according to the report the UK will issue a £ 5 note, called the “Five”, which will be in very low circulation.
Philip was married to Queen Elizabeth II for 73 years, and it shows the 95-year-old king as usual on British coins.
The coin was introduced in England on Armed Forces Day, when Philip had a distinguished naval career.
“This coin is a fitting tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh and he has inspired many people around the world to serve the nation and his majesty for decades,” said Treasurer Rishi Sunak.
Coin is available on the site Royal Mint In addition to post offices around the UK and private equities around the Commonwealth and around the world, Royal Ducks of Edinburgh will donate £ 50,000 (000 70,000) to the prize, celebrating important royal events over the centuries to support his social work in the UK and internationally.
