On the 22nd of July 2013, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first child, Prince George into the world. As third in line to the throne, the Prince has grown up in the limelight, warming hearts of people the world over and being adored during Royal Tours with his parents.
Now, as the 22nd of July 2018 approaches, the nation looks to celebrate the fifth birthday of the much loved Prince with a commemorative £5 coin issued by The Royal Mint.
This brand new coin design was revealed at the start of the year and has now been officially released to mark HRH Prince George’s fifth birthday in July.
This modern interpretation of a traditional design by esteemed mint designer, Jody Clark portrays an image of Saint George slaying the mythical dragon with a spear.
Saint George is known as the patron saint of England, upholding the ideals of honour, bravery and gallantry. The legend of George and the Dragon dates back to the 7th century or earlier, symbolising the victory of good over evil.
This is the first time that Saint George and the Dragon has been depicted on a base metal coin in over 60 years, a key feature for collectors.
It seems fitting that this traditional depiction should be used to represent our young Prince as he reaches this milestone in his early life, taking on the responsibility of being a big brother to his two younger siblings and tackling the trials of starting education, all alongside his Royal duties and representing the country of course.
Commemoratives marking Prince George’s fifth birthday are sure to be in high demand and £5 coins are reserved for the most important Royal and historical anniversaries, making this coin the perfect way to celebrate this special Royal Birthday.
As our future King, any coin issued to celebrate Prince George will be highly sought after, especially amongst Royalty collectors who won’t want any gaps in their collection.
