Britain rejoiced at the news of the safe arrival of Prince George of Cambridge. Coins struck to welcome the new Prince – the first struck for a Royal birth – were so popular they sold out in days. And as Prince George is christened The Royal Mint strikes a range of premium coins in another first, for coins have never before been issued for a Royal christening. Among them is the Kilo coin, the largest UK coin, destined to find its way to only the most exclusive collections.

One full kilogramme of fine silver: the Kilo is the most prestigious coin in our entire range. It is struck only rarely, to mark events of national significance. To honour the christening of Prince George we issue only the fourth ever UK Kilo coin, and with its richly detailed design it is simply magnificent. John Bergdahl, the artist who created Britain’s last Kilo for the 60th Anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation, has recalled Royal tradition in art with an opulent baroque design of lilies and cherubs.

Our premium coins will bear versions of John Bergdahl’s design, including this hugely impressive Kilo coin. At over 100mm in diameter and containing a kilogramme of silver it is a mighty tribute, every detail of the christening design – a first for Britain’s coinage – is perfected by our world-renowned quality. Only 500 Silver Kilo coins will be struck, presented in the luxury they deserves, with bespoke cases, booklets and Certificates of Authenticity.

Marking a Royal christening for the very first time

The safe arrival of Prince George was greeted with joy across the world – the brief glimpses of the new third in line to the throne were very special moments indeed. And when his name was announced it spoke of heritage – George, like his great-great-grandfather George VI.

The christening of Prince George will be steeped in tradition, water from the River Jordan is used to baptise Royal babies, held in the ornate Lily Font that is kept at the Tower of London and traditionally used for Royal christenings. It was to the Lily Font that sculptor John Bergdahl turned for inspiration when creating his to design to honour Prince George, the ornate font sits at the bottom of the design, two harp-playing cherubs above heralding the arrival of a child that is destined to be king.
