A new £5 coin celebrating Prince Philip and his 70 years of service could end up being worth a mint in the future, depending on how rare it becomes.
The coin, available to pre-order from the Royal Mint for £13 to be shipped in late August, reads ‘NON SIBI SED PATRIAE’ in Latin, which means: ‘Not for himself but for his country.

The new £5 coin comes after Prince Philip announced in May his retirement from public duty and his last official engagement was last week.
If public uptake is small again, it could be a future collectors’ item.
