Royal Mint to mint coin for newest royal
- Published: Mar 24, 2015, 8 AM
Prince George, the first child of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will soon have a new brother or sister, and coin collectors will have a coin to celebrate the event.
The Royal Mint has received official approval to issue a £5 coin to mark the birth, which is expected to occur in “mid-to-late” April.
This child will be the couple’s second; the Royal Mint issued a coin for the birth of Prince George in 2013, as well as a coin for his christening.
Full details of the 2015 coin release have not been announced, but the Royal Mint generally issues such commemorative coins in several versions, including copper-nickel, silver and gold.
Coin World will report on the new coin or coins as further information becomes available.
