25 years ago, the world lost one of the most beloved princesses in history. New for 2022, this affordable fine gold 100 francs coin pays tribute to Lady Diana, and celebrates the life of the People’s Princess. The reverse design features an iconic image of Diana with a rose privy mark around the number 25, while the obverse features the Djibouti coat of arms. The coin has an 11 mm diameter with a weight of .5 grams and comes presented in a protective capsule and display case. Mintage is limited to just 5,000 coins worldwide. GST/HST exempt.

Prince Charles began courting Lady Diana from 1980-81, and the two were married on 29th July 1981 in the most famous and widely watched wedding of the 20th century, with nearly 750,000 tuning and over half a million standing outside to see the Royal Wedding. From then on, Diana became one of the most famous people in the world, with every step she took and every decision she made heavily scrutinized across the world. She stayed busy with international charities, human rights work, being a mother, and all the necessities being part of the Royal Family required.

In 1995, two years before Diana, Princess of Wales died in a car crash in Paris, she said in a TV interview that she'd like to be a queen. But she wasn't talking about the British monarchy into which she'd married. She wanted to be a queen of people's hearts. In the 25 years since her death on August 31, 1997, it's become clear how well she fulfilled that hope. Every August, tributes pour in to celebrate her life and legacy -- one that valued authenticity over protocol, and humanity over prestige.

She used her celebrity to raise awareness for a number of causes, from leprosy to domestic violence to mental health. She made headlines in 1987 when she intentionally shook hands with an AIDS patient, working to dispel the myth that HIV/AIDS could be spread through touch. And in the months before she died, she took her media spotlight and placed it squarely on the dangers of landmines in Angola. She was, in the words of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, "the people's princess."
