The Royal Mint have issued a £5 crown to celebrate the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's second child, Princess Charlotte.
We also sell a Brilliant Uncirculated version.
Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born on 2nd May, 2015, at St Mary's Hospital in London. This is the same hospital where both Princes William and Harry were both born, as well as her older brother, George.
Her full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles, named after her grandfather, Prince Charles. Her middle names come from her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II and her late grandmother, Princess Diana.
Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne.
The obverse features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Royal Mint designer, Jody Clark. Interestingly, the coin features '5 pounds' instead of the word 'five'. We noticed this straight away when looking at it and think this may be the first time The Royal Mint have used the number instead of the word on coins.
The reverse design is by sculptor, John Bergdahl, and is a very traditional design. Bergdahl also designed Prince George's Royal Christening Crown, and wanted to keep this coin in line with the traditional appearance of the other coin.
The coin read:
"CELEBRATE THE SECOND CHILD OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE 2015"
