We have a large range of collectible coins and special stamps here at the Post Office Shop, including the Royal Birth 2015 Silver Proof £5 Coin to celebrate the birth of HRH Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. This UK £5 coin has been approved by Her Majesty The Queen along with her proud parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
As a new branch has now been added to the Royal Family tree, and His Royal Highness Prince George became a big brother, it is fitting that this moment has been captured as it was for his birth as well. It seems only yesterday that the nation celebrated the arrival of Princess Charlotte. The occasion has been marked with this stunning £5 coin so that you can remember the Royal Family’s joy as Prince George welcomed his "little sister" into the world.
This UK UKRB15SP £5 coin has a reverse designed to reflect the coin struck for Prince George’s christening, created by the same artist to continue a family feel. It is elegant and modern, with an elaborate inscription announcing the birth and lilies echoing the Lily font used in Royal christenings.
The coin design reflects that which was on the coin struck for the Christening of Prince George. John Bergdahl has once again turned to Royal traditions and the famous Lily Font for inspiration, creating an elegant composition with block cartouche and decorative inscriptions. The inscription framing the centre reads "To Celebrate The Birth Of The Second Child Of" which then has "The Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge” in the middle of the Royal design. The obverse features the new fifth definitive coinage portrait of The Queen by Jody Clark, making this a real homage to the future.
This coin is a wonderful souvenir of the occasion and a real collectible with only a limited edition struck to proof quality of 9,500. Enjoy the handsome design that has been created in HRH Princess Charlotte of Cambridge’s honour and the booklet that joins it, which celebrates the siblings that have gone before these very special Royal children.
