Sorry, I was not anticipating a large number of coins with those same
exact inscriptions and images. Here is about as much as I can find to
describe.

It is a silver coin, 3.8 cm diameter and about .3 cm thick. The side
is not smooth, but with very fine groves.

It has a young looking Elizabeth with a crown looking off to the right
side of the coin with the inscription "D. G. REG. F. D." around the
left side and "Elizabeth II" around the right side.

Turn the coin over and there is the image of Diana in the back with
Charles in front both looking off to the left side of the coin.
Centered underneath, is "1981". Around the entire coin starting in
the bottom left is inscribed ""H.R.H. The Prince Of Wales And Lady
Diana Spencer"


It sounds like its the crown-sized coin minted to commemorate the
royal wedding.

Here's a picture of the reverse of that coin

Is that what you have?

take care,

The inscriptions match the British crown that was released in honor of their
wedding. The "face value" (not shown on the coin) would be 1/4 pound, or about
48 cents American at current exchange rates. I believe upwards of 25 million of
these coins were struck in base metal, and consequently are worth very little.
A smaller number were made in silver, and might be worth a bit more.

Don't think so. A "piece" featuring Elizabeth II, with the "D. G. REG.
F. D." inscription will usually be a British coin. Those older "crowns"
do not show the face value (25p) either, but are still coins :-) This
one could be KM#925 (Cu-Ni) or 925a (silver) ...

Yep. That looks like it. Also noticed what appears to be "pn" under
Charles' collar.

Is the coin worth much?

I have a Silver coin with "D G REG F D" "Elizabeth II" and a young
looking Elizabeth on one side, and "H.R.H. The Prince Of Wales And
Lady Diana Spencer" "1981" on the other.

I'm looking for the value of this coin. In my searches, I've seen
anywhere from 30 US cents up to $35. (even one listed selling for
$200, but then people can ask for anything they want!!)

I've also seen it listed as Austrailian as well as British.



It would depend on where it was from and the condition. The UK and
Commonwealth issued a multitude of wedding coins for Chuck and Di in
1981.

Those coins are kind of sad now, the marriage was a mistake right from
the
start.


Their marriage was not a mistake. Look at all of the good she was able to do with her fame. Look at how many children she helped? She was one of the first people to show that AIDS patients didn't have to be treated like lepers. And that marriage produced at least one boy worthy of ruling someday who has fearlessly served his country and continues to keep his mother's legacy of charity and compassion alive. A mistake....I think not.
