First christening coins minted for Prince George

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.
