Great Britain 2018 royal wedding coins

Available on The Royal Mint website from the 1st May, the design has been created by Jody Clark who is a member of The Royal Mint’s Coin Design team. Since creating the current effigy of Her Majesty the Queen in 2015, this is the latest royal figure Jody has depicted in his designs.

Following the announcement of their engagement, The Royal Mint was granted a sitting to capture photographs of Prince Harry and Meghan at Kensington Palace. The photography provided Jody with additional reference material to help create a true likening of the royal couple.

Anne Jessopp, CEO at The Royal Mint commented: “It has been an honour for The Royal Mint to work closely with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to create the authentic Royal Wedding coin celebrating this most British of celebrations. I have been in post as CEO of The Royal Mint for just a couple of months, and already The Royal Mint has celebrated the birth of His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge, and now a Royal Wedding, so it’s a very exciting year for The Royal Mint in terms of royal moments”.

The coins is aldeady available in Brilliant Uncirculated or Silver Proof and Gold Proof £5 from 1st May 2018.
