Commemorative coins are popular with coin collectors, this silver proof coin would make a splendid gift for anyone who is interested in the British Royal family.
Prince George Alexander Louis was born on 22nd July 2013. As third in line to the throne, he has attracted a lot of attention from the media and fans alike. This is the fourth £5 crown to honour Prince George.
This is the fifth commemorative £5 crown to be issued in 2015, the others being for the 50th Anniversary of the Death of Sir Winston Churchill, the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, the Royal Birth of Princess Charlotte and the Christening of Princess Charlotte.
Commemorative crowns are British legal tender, however they are not circulation coins and are not accepted as payment in shops or banks.
The obverse features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Royal Mint designer, Jody Clark.
The reverse of the coin was designed by esteemed artist Christopher Le Brun. It features another famous George, Saint George. Le Brun's design has him on top of his horse, ready to slay the dragon. The name George is thought to represent stability and unity which is why they chose England's patron Saint to celebrate the future King's birthday.
