First heir to the throne in 31 years, Baby George gets his own coin!

The birth of baby George to the royal couple William and Kate was celebrated worldwide. After all, he is the first heir to the throne born in 31 years! These gorgeous proofs are the very first coins struck for this future monarch, King George VII, and the first time in the Royal Mint’s history they’ve ever struck coins specifically for a future king’s christening!

A FIRST FOR BABY GEORGE - This 2013 Kilo proof is the first christening coin in the future of King George VII’s collection. Made of one kilo pure 99.9% silver, this coin commemorates the royal christening with an exquisite John Bengal baroque design that’s been approved by Queen Elizabeth II as well as the royal couple, William and Kate! (Bengal designed the London 2012 Gold series and the 2013 Coronation Kilos). The design is inscribed with TO CELEBRATE THE CHRISTENING OF PRINCE GEORGE OF CAMBRIDGE 2013 framed in a baroque design featuring a lily font christening bowl from the Tower of London, harp-playing cherubs sitting at base of lily font and swags of lily flowers. The obverse depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.

PROOF FINISH FIT FOR A FUTURE KING -- Struck in 99.9% fine silver this one kilo proof coin is expertly manufactured using polished dies and select planchets, struck multiple times for an exquisite mirror effect with lustrous fields and superiorly sharp details unlike other coins. Great Britain fans along with serious coin collectors will appreciate its beauty and significance.

BIGGEST LEGAL TENDER COIN -- More than just a commemorative proof, this coin is also the biggest legal tender coin to be struck by the Royal Mint – 500 pounds.

FLAWLESS GRADING -- Your coin will be certified Proof-70 First Struck by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly graded coin will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and Royal Mint intended!

SONICALLY SEALED -- Your kilo coin will be expertly encapsulated by NGC as “one of the first 100 struck” and will include a certificate of authenticity.

LIMITED MINTAGE OF JUST 72 -- Only 20% of the total mintage of 500 were approved as first struck coins. Out of this amount, we only obtained a mere 72 coins, making it extremely rare and extremely sought-after in the collecting world -- where the future monarch and Her Majesty are some of the most popular themes!

In years to come, this silver proof could be among the most collectible of any struck by the Royal Mint. That, with the fact that we only received 72 coins to pass onto you makes this a rarity you won’t want to ponder! Click now and add this baby to your collection today!
