Share the joy with a Royal memento
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.
About the coin
The nation has taken the thoroughly modern Royals, Princess Catherine and Prince William, to their hearts, and they have responded warmly, allowing glimpses into family moments. Any news of Prince George is eagerly awaited, as were the coins struck to celebrate his birth. As Prince George becomes a ‘big brother’, the new baby is sure of a Royal welcome from Britain and around the world.
This official UK coin has a reverse designed to reflect the coin struck for Prince George’s christening, created by the same artist to continue a family feel. It is elegant and modern, with an elaborate inscription announcing the birth and lilies echoing the Lily Font used in Royal christenings. The obverse features the new fifth definitive coinage portrait of The Queen by Jody Clark, making this a real homage to the future. Each coin comes complete with a booklet celebrating siblings – perfect as we watch the young Cambridges grow up together.
