The birth of the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has been greeted with such delight around the world. Now, at the time of the Royal christening, we celebrate with a splendid coin. This christening, such a joyful occasion, deserves a sophisticated commemoration. What could be more fitting than a gold Kilo coin? It is a regal tribute to a baby that is destined to be king, with a design inspired by centuries of rich tradition.
In 2013, Prince George’s birth year, John Bergdahl’s intricate design inspired by Royal christening traditions appears on a gold Kilo coin. Reserved for important occasions – this is only the fourth – Kilo coins contain a whole kilogramme of fine gold, and are a real treasure for collectors. With only 22 of the exclusive Christening of HRH Prince George of Cambridge 2013 UK Gold Proof Kilo Coins available – the number chosen to reflect the young Prince’s birthday – demand is sure to be high and an early order is recommended.
The Royal family has seen many special celebrations in 2013, culminating in the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge on 22 July. His safe arrival received a royal welcome as millions rejoiced, and observed a significant moment in the nation’s history.
We now continue the celebrations with the christening of Prince George, and begin new traditions – this is the first time The Royal Mint has commemorated a Royal christening. John Bergdahl’s design, baroque in style, incorporates many of the traditions that surround Royal christenings, including the beautiful Lily Font. When struck to perfection on this Gold Kilo Coin the design is truly stunning, our most exclusive coin for a most exclusive occasion - the arrival of the third in line to the throne. There is a strict limit of just 22 coins, each housed in a bespoke display case and presented with Certificate of Authenticity.
