As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcome their second child, we have the perfect way to join the celebrations. Approved by Her Majesty The Queen and the proud parents, this United Kingdom £5 coin – the only official coin to be created – has been struck. There is such excitement as this new branch is added to the Royal Family tree, and it is fitting that as His Royal Highness Prince George becomes a big brother, we capture the moment just as we did for his birth.
It seems like only yesterday that the nation celebrated the safe arrival of Prince George, and now we rejoice once more as we welcome a new member of the Cambridge family to the world. The Royal Mint has marked the occasion for the nation with an official UK coin, so that you can join the Royal Family’s joy as Prince George becomes an older brother. Enjoy the handsome design that has been created in the new baby’s honour, and the booklet that joins it, celebrating the siblings that have gone before these very special Royal children.
With a design that reflects the coin struck for the christening of Prince George, John Bergdahl has once again turned to Royal traditions and the famous Lily Font for inspiration, creating an elegant composition with block cartouche and decorative inscriptions. And with the new fifth coinage portrait by Jody Clark on its obverse, this is a true look to the future. Struck in sterling silver, finished to our envied Proof quality, this coin is a wonderful souvenir of the occasion and a real collectable, with just 9,500 to be struck in this limited edition presentation.
