Charles & Diana's Wedding Crowns
To celebrate and commemorate the marriage of His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer, on the 29th July 1981, sixteen nations issued an international collection of silver proof crown sized coins. The issue was co-ordinated by the British Royal Mint. We give details below of the coins, together with prices and availability of the coins individually and as a complete collection.
The original official issue price was £28.75 per coin, making £460 for the entire collection, although it is likely that individual coins may have been issued at a higher price if purchased separately.

Notes
* = Mauritius Issue limit stated as 30,000 pieces, but Krause state 2,090 pieces as the mintage. If this is correct, it may mean that the actual mintage figures for most of this collection are much lower than the original issue limit.
