Posted on Tue, 1 March 2011 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

As predicted (and hoped for) by COIN NEWS the Royal Mint have announced that there is to be an official Royal Wedding Crown for the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William on April 29. The £5 Crown, which features the profiles of the couple facing each other, the wedding date and the names William and Catherine (you will note Catherine not Kate) will be struck in cupro-nickel, silver, gold and platinum. We also understand there is to be a gold plated silver version and a silver piedfort.. For more information see the Royal Mint's website
