This stunning five pound crown is issued by The Royal Mint to commemorate the first birthday of Prince George of Cambridge. This is the silver proof version of the coin, which comes presented in a box, along with a certificate of authenticity.
His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born on 22nd July, 2013. It is the first time in 120 years - and only the second time it has ever happened - that the reigning monarch has welcomed a great-grandchild who is destined to succeed the throne.
The Royal Family will be celebrating the event privately at Kensington Palace. His father, Prince William, spent his first birthday also at Kensington Palace. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were visiting Scotland for their annual summer visit, but Prince Charles and Camilla did phone to wish him a happy birthday.
The obverse reverts back to the fourth portrait of the Queen designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, and introduced in 1998.
ELIZABETH II D G REG F D
The reverse design is a cruciform version of the Royal Arms - a design that has only appeared on coins twice before. Reserved for important occasions, the design was featured on the Queen's Coronation Crown in 1953 and the New York Exhibition Crown in 1960. Though each member of the Royal Family has his or her own coat of arms, the Royal Arms represent the whole Royal Family.
