Each of these incredible commemorative coins has been produced to the highest quality as befits a Pobjoy Mint coin. The precious metal coins have been struck four times to create the famous Pobjoy Proof finish and feature frosted sculpting against a mirror brilliant background.

The obverse of each coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these coins.

The first time since Queen Victoria’s era, that there have been three living male heirs, these coins  provide the perfect souvenir to mark Prince George of Cambridge’s birth.
