Following their Royal Wedding in 2011, Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had another year of celebrations in 2012.  Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate their 30th Birthdays along with their First Wedding Anniversary.  To commemorate these events, several coins are being issued by British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands and South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands.

Watched by two billion people all over the world, the Royal Wedding last year was a spectacular event.  As always with these Royal Occasions, probably the most anticipated moment of the whole day was the appearance of the newly married couple on the balcony of Buckingham Palace following their service.  With some encouragement from the waiting crowds below, the Royal Couple displayed their love with a kiss, much to the delight of the throngs of people that had gathered to watch.  

Following a formal reception at Buckingham Palace with many foreign officials, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left Buckingham Palace for Clarence House, with the Duke driving his new bride in his father’s Aston Martin DB6 which was adorned with ribbons and balloons.  It is this image that is captured on the coin from British Indian Ocean Territory.
