Made to commemorate the forming of the Prince of Wales Hospital Fund in 1897.

Still going today, the King's Fund is a charitable foundation in England. Founded as the Prince of Wales Hospital Fund for London in 1897, the fund changed its name in 1902 to King Edward's Hospital Fund after the accession to the throne of King Edward VII. In 1907, Parliament incorporated the fund as the King's Fund. The King’s Fund seeks to understand how the health system in England can be improved. It organizes conferences and other events. George Stephen, 1st Baron Mount Stephen worked closely with the future George V in building the charity's endowment fund. Lord Mount Stephen was the charity's most important benefactor, having made gifts to the amount of £1,315,000.
Since 1997, they have combined with GlaxoSmithKline to fund a yearly award system. They reward small to medium sized health charities who are improving people's heath.
