Prince George Second Birthday
As Prince George celebrated his second birthday, The Royal Mint issued extra special editions of The Sovereign 2015.
Third in line to the throne, the young Prince shares his name with The Queen’s father George VI, a name associated with stability and unity, and one that continues a proud British tradition. Along with The Sovereign that was struck, we also marked the occasion with a silver £5 coin featuring a magnificent contemporary portrait of St George, England’s patron saint. Christopher Le Brun RA has created a stirring composition of the dragon-slayer for the birthday issue, and what a wonderful pair it would make to this very limited edition of The Sovereign, our flagship coin.
