The Royal Mint Commemorative coin

By Adrian Notter - December 7th, 2021 | Posted in News

To celebrate the life and legacy of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, The Royal Mint has released an official commemorative coin. 100 commemorative coins, accompanied by a letter of thanks from HRH The Earl of Wessex and Forfar will be given to inspirational volunteers around the world.

We are so proud that a member of the college team has been recognised for her efforts towards The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and has been awarded one the commemorative coins. Only 50 volunteers from across the UK will be awarded with a coin – an outstanding achievement to be nominated. Congratulations and special thanks to Frances McKay who has been key in ensuring the students could continue to progress towards their awards over the last year, creating interesting and impactful volunteering opportunities.
