PRINCE GEORGE OF CAMBRIDGE FIRST BIRTHDAY
FIVE POUND SILVER PROOF COIN
On 22nd July 2013, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed their son into the world.
Prince George of Cambridge is third in line to the throne and the future king of England.
A year later the Royal mint issued a Five pound Silver Proof Crown
to celebrate little Prince George’s First Birthday.
The image on this crown, was used in 1953 in Her Majesty’s Coronation year.
Designed by the heraldic painter Edgar Fuller and modelled by the sculptor Cecil Thomas.
The crown has four shields representing the
three countries which make up the United Kingdom.
The harp – Northern Ireland
The Three Lions – England
Scotland – Scottish ‘Rampant’ Lion
Wales does not have a shield,
the shields form a cross and is interspersed
with the national floral emblems of our four countries
Shamrock, Leek, Tudor rose and Scottish thistle.
A fitting coin for our future King, George.
