Commemorative coins will be issued for the celebration Prince William Its 40th birthday. On June 21 of this year, Prince William will turn 40, and it looks like there’s still a whole month left before the event, but the gifts weren’t long in coming. The first presentation in honor of the Duke’s anniversary was made by the Royal Mint of Great Britain:
A portrait of Cambridge will be adorned with a five pound coin. The design of the gift was unveiled on Monday, and the coin is said to be based on a photo taken at the British ambassador’s residence in Amman in June 2018 at the prince’s birthday party. The coin depicts three-quarters of the prince’s profile, and the duke’s eye is located in the upper right corner.
On the left, you can see the number 40, which is a reference to the Jubilee figure, and on the right, you can see the letter “W”, decorated with a crown that marks William’s name and future state. A limited edition of the two currencies will also be published, including a 0.25 oz celebration gold coin and a sovereign (English gold coin) from 1982, the year the Duke was born. Also, the collection will include a limited edition coin made from 5 oz hard gold using a special laser technology that creates a “highly embossed finish”, giving a portrait of Prince William and an enhanced three-dimensional look.
Experts point out that this is the first time that a representative of the royal family, who still occupies the second place on the throne, has decorated a coin with his portrait alone. You can pre-order the coin on the official website of Royal Mint ROYALMINT.COM.
