2011 Canada $15 His Royal Highness Prince Henry (Harry) of Wales Ultra High Relief Sterling Silver Coin

Britain's Royal Family has been central to life in Great Britain, its empire, and often the world, since William I. Throughout, kings and queens have adapted the monarchy to meet every age's challenges. Today's monarchy represents a continuous thread in British history; one that embodies a powerful sense of identity, memory, and affection.

Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984 and baptized Prince Henry Charles Albert David. After attending Mrs. Mynors and Wetherby Schools, Harry joined his brother Prince William at Ludgrove School. In September 1998, he began his studies at Eton College.

After graduating, Harry visited Africa. Touched by the plight of Lesotho's orphans, he co-founded Sentebale ("Forget-me-Not"), one of six charitable organizations of which he is patron.

In 2005, Harry returned to his studies at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. In February 2008, Harry served in Afghanistan as a member of the British Army. After being promoted to Lieutenant, Harry began training to become a full-time Army Air Corps helicopter pilot in 2009.

Prince Harry is a keen sportsman who also enjoys off-road motor-biking. In October 2008, he and Prince William began a 1,000-mile trek across South Africa to raise funds for Sentebale, UNICEF, and The Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
