1. More Royal coins to be released

Princess Charlotte's christening will be held on July 5 at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk. To honor the event, the Royal Mint will release a gold and a silver coin following the significant checkpoint in the young princess's life. 

"The new coin will be available in silver, in keeping with the long-established tradition of crossing a newborn baby’s palm with silver to confer good health and prosperity, and also in gold to mark the royal celebration," a Royal Mint news release reads. 

Designs are expected some time in the next couple of weeks. 

Register in advance to purchase one of the coins.
