Description

In tribute to Princess Diana whose life tragically came to an end on 31st August 1997, Pobjoy Mint introduces a stunning coin on behalf of the Ascension Island Government to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of her Death.

The centre of the reverse features a beautiful Diana Rose, a rose named after Diana as she was known as England’s Rose. We have achieved this unique finish by striking an indent into the coin and fixing an intricately carved piece of mother of pearl in the shape of the rose into the cavity. The colour of the Mother of pearl is unique to each coin and features a mixture of different colours and patterns.

The fairy tale romance of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles raised worldwide interest in Britain's Royal Family.  On 29th July 1981 million crowded the London streets to catch a glimpse of the couple before they exchanged vows at St Paul’s Cathedral.  In the early years of her marriage Diana appeared a shy, private member of the British aristocracy, however, her grace and nobility won the hearts of the nation and she soon blossomed into the people’s princess.  Throwing herself into her royal duties exhibiting a warmth and concern for all those causes she supported, Diana became the most photographed member of the Royal Family.

Such public devotion led millions of mourners to line the route of her funeral procession from Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey on 31st August 1997.  Most wept or watched in silence as the gun carriage passed carrying Diana’s coffin, but some applauded quietly as a sign of appreciation for their much-loved princess.
