1981 Charles and Diana $200 Gold Coin

Following on from the $200 gold coin program started in 1980 with the Koala Reverse $200 gold coin was the Charles and Diana Royal Wedding $200 gold coin issued in 1981. Struck to brilliant uncirculated standard only it was minted from 10.0 grams of 0.9167 fine gold (22 carat) which converts to 0.2948 ounces of gold. At the time of writing the gold content of this coin was worth about US$400 but you can check todays value using our Gold Coin Calculator. The reverse of the coin depicts the famous royal couple, Chuck and Di, using the same design which we talked about in this Chuck and Di 50c coin entry. This design was the one officially endorsed by the Royal Family and used on many coins around the world to celebrate what was arguably the most popular wedding of the 20th Century. Perhaps the wedding of the couple’s son Prince William, will be as popular and as well represented on the proposed new RAM Wills and Kate coin.

Minted only in 1981 the Royal Wedding $200 gold coin has the Arnold Machin portrait of the Prince’s mother. The Reverse was designed by Stuart Devlin. 77,890 of the coins were minted with an initial issue price of $240.
