In 2013, a year of many Royal celebrations, the nation has united once more to celebrate the safe arrival of the future heir to the throne, Prince George of Cambridge. As the young prince is christened The Royal Mint commemorates a Royal christening for the first time ever with official coins, approved by the Palace. This superb Silver Proof Five-Ounce coin, one of our premier commemorative coins, bears the specially commissioned christening design by John Bergdahl. It is a magnificent way to mark this regal occasion.
The world celebrated the birth of the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and to mark the Royal christening we turn to a suitably splendid coin. Only the most elegant of coins could be chosen for this important moment, and the Silver Proof Five-Ounce, with its six-centimetre diameter expertly filled by John Bergdahl, makes a handsome memento.
John Bergdahl’s intricate design takes its inspiration from centuries of Royal christening traditions. Struck on the impressive Five-Ounce, his design is highlighted by stunning fine silver and finished to our unrivalled standards. The Five-Ounce is reserved for the most special occasions and makes an impressive addition to the most comprehensive collections. Only 1,660 of the exclusive Christening of HRH Prince George of Cambridge 2013 UK Silver Five-Ounce Coins will be available – reflecting the birth year of King George I – meaning demand will no doubt be very high.
