The famous St George struck for Prince George

On 22 July 2014 His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge will celebrate his first birthday. Just as The Royal Mint marked his arrival with a specially struck coin, so we honour the birthday of the young prince with an impressive double – The Double-Sovereign. Struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, this is the first time this coin will be available individually. Only 1,300 coins will be struck, each one featuring the famous Sovereign design of St George, a fitting tribute to Prince George that is sure to be most popular.

About the coin

Such was the popularity of coins struck for the birth and christening of Prince George – including this same design struck on a silver coin for the first time in more than a century – that The Double-Sovereign, struck for Prince George’s birthday and bearing his namesake St George once more, will be in high demand. The Double-Sovereign, usually the preserve of collectors of The Royal Mint’s Sovereign sets, is available for the first time as a single coin. Only 1,300 of these Brilliant Uncirculated Double-Sovereigns for 2014 will be issued for the first birthday of a young prince who is destined to be king one day. Your coin is presented in a Royal Mint display case with a booklet that explores the story behind the coin, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its limited release.

On 22 July 2013 a new Royal heir was born. The arrival of His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis, the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was greeted with jubilation at home and abroad. The Royal Mint was ready to welcome the new prince and the 10,000 coins struck to celebrate his birth sold out within days – a silver coin that bore the iconic image of St George and the dragon was among the most popular coins of recent years.

The Double-Sovereign – containing double the amount of gold of a Sovereign – is such an impressive coin. On its obverse is the current coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, the Prince’s great-grandmother of course, while on its reverse St George does battle with the dragon in the age-old story of good triumphing over evil. The design is recognised and admired all over the world, and for St George to honour the first birthday of Prince George is a fitting double – well suited to the impressive Double-Sovereign.

The coin is beautiful. The representation of St. George slaying the dragon is truly phenomenal and great hope for the young Prince who will conquer evil to triumph is for good on British subjects. It 'a masterpiece that will be remembered for years to come as one of the most beautiful coins minted by a young Prince.

Very nice Coin. Beautiful! Thanks.

Far, far crisper and better detail than the photo suggests. The hair detail above the crown and the "frown lines" are much crisper than the advertised picture of the Queens face of the coin. Royal Mint should update the photo with more detail.
