The arrival of Prince George of Cambridge began a new chapter in the history of the Royal family. As he is christened, The Royal Mint celebrates with an important first, striking a coin for the christening of a Royal baby for the very first time. And as befits such a regal occasion, a most notable coin is now available. Bearing the official christening design is this hugely impressive double-thickness Piedfort coin in rare and beautiful platinum, struck to world-renowned Proof quality, a majestic coin indeed.

Collectors of Piedfort coins will know that these coins of such weight and beauty are sought after. That platinum is one of the most desired, most rare, of the precious metals is evident. And when combined with the fact that this official christening coin struck for Prince George is a first for Britain’s coinage, demand is likely to be unprecedented. With only 100 coins to be struck, this will be among the most collectable issues to date.

Not only is the Platinum Proof Piedfort £5 coin most unusual, but also it bears an exquisite design. John Bergdahl, an artist who has created significant coins for The Royal Mint including the prestigious Kilo struck for the anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty the Queen, has turned to tradition for inspiration. Lilies and cherubs surround the simple inscription that celebrates the christening of a child who is destined to be king one day.

Marking a Royal christening for the very first time

His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Philip Louis was greeted in style by another important first – coins struck to honour a Royal birth. They sold out within days, confirming the importance in which the nation holds this young Prince. Such limited numbers of these simply stunning Platinum Proof Piedfort £5 coins have been struck, and Piedfort collectors around the world will want to secure these exceptional coins for their collections. Each coin is housed in a Royal Mint display case, and a Certificate of Authenticity confirms their impressive pedigree.

John Bergdahl has created designs that capture the sense of ceremony and history that surrounds the christening of Prince George. He has chosen the Lily Font, used in Royal christening ceremonies, as his inspiration, with classical cherubs to balance his design. Your coin is accompanied by a booklet that explores the christening of Prince George.
