Christening coins made by Royal Mint in Llantrisant

The Royal Mint in Llantrisant has produced a special set of coins to mark Prince George's christening.

This is the first time that new UK coins have been produced to mark the christening of a member of the royal family.

The coins feature a new design - with swags of lilies, two harp-playing cherubs, and the Queen's motto. Credit: Royal Mint

A limited edition gold kilo coin has gone on sale for £50,000 but there is a more affordable range of gold or silver coins for £13.
