The Royal Mint in Llantrisant has created the first ever christening coin in the UK to mark Prince George's baptism later this month. A limited edition gold kilo coin could be yours for a staggering 50 thousand pounds.
Or, thankfully, there's a more affordable gold or silver £5 coin - a mere snip at 13 pounds. The Mint has already received thousands of pre-orders for the Baroque designed coin from within the UK and around the world, as Dean Thomas reports.
This is the first time that new UK coins have been produced to mark the christening of a member of the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Queen and Chancellor George Osborne have all given the design their approval.
The Royal Mint has celebrated moments of national significance for over 1,000 years and it was felt appropriate to produce the first-ever set of Royal christening coins to mark the christening of our future king.
The classic design of these coins was inspired by the symbols and images from the silver gilt lily font, which has traditionally been used for every Royal christening since 1841.
Silver is closely associated with new born babies, as crossing the palm of a new born baby with silver is a way to wish them wealth and good health throughout their life.

We carry her around in our pockets and she's been here since the beginning of the Roman Empire! But 1 in 4 of us don't recognise the woman described as 'the face of our nation'. The Royal Mint has been on the streets of Cardiff to change that. Megan Boot was there.
The Royal Mint in Llantrisant is giving babies born on the same day as the future monarch a suitably royal welcome by presenting them with a silver penny struck with the year of their birth.
Crossing the palm of a new born with silver or offering them a silver penny is traditionally seen as a way to wish them wealth and good health.
Parents who wish to claim their silver penny need to go to www.facebook.com/theroyalmint and register the birth of their child.
Parents have sixty days following the birth to obtain one of the 2,013 coins that are to be made available by The Royal Mint.
Shane Bissett, Director of Commemorative Coin at the Royal Mint said, "The birth of the royal baby will be a joyous occasion not just for Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
"However, it will also be a special day for many mothers and fathers across the country as they too welcome the arrival of their new baby, hence why we wanted to extend this historical moment to them."
