Design unveiled for £5 Royal Wedding Coin

Following the exciting announcement last week that a brand new £5 UK coin is to be commissioned in honour of the upcoming Royal Wedding, the design for this unique issue has now been revealed.  Created by sculptor Mark Richards, the design depicts the happy couple facing one another in a charming portrait.

In addition, it has been announced by the Royal Mint that the silver £5 coin plated in gold will have an edition limit of just 7,500.  As the Royal Mint has acknowledged, the Royal Wedding £5 coins are liable to be some of the most popular coins ever issued by the Mint and so this edition limit is unlikely to completely satisfy demand.
