Whether you are purchasing your Brilliant Uncirculated £5 coin as a memento for you to treasure or as an addition to the memory box of a child or grandchild, you will be delighted with this beautiful coin, specially commissioned for the christening. It is decorated with traditional lilies and cherubs herald the birth of a new Prince, a baby who is destined to be king one day. And in the elegant packaging you can read all about the young Prince’s names and Royal christening customs.
John Bergdahl, a sculptor who has created a number of coins for The Royal Mint, was inspired by tradition. His design has the Lily Font at its heart – the font that is used to baptise Royal children, normally kept in the safe confines of the Tower of London.
Your coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a much better quality than the coins you might find in your change – and it is kept at its sparkling best in the specially designed display folder that also helps you explore the christening.
Never before has a coin been struck for a Royal christening – and the coins struck to greet Prince George’s birth were so popular they sold out in days
