It’s A Boy! The Royal Mint Pays Tribute to Harry & Megan’s First Child

First came the fairy-tale romance between the handsome prince and the American actress. Then came the lavish and oh-so sumptuous Royal Wedding watched by millions around the world. And now a new blessing has been announced: the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child! To pay tribute to this happy occasion, The Royal Mint of Great Britain has released a special silver penny – an exquisite little keepsake that’s perfect for any Royal Watcher or the parents of children born in 2019.

Specially struck in 92.5% British Sterling silver, this gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) legal-tender coin honors the age-old tradition of crossing a baby’s palm with silver as a sign of good luck. According to tradition, if the child grabs the coin and holds on tight, he will grow up to be a miser. If the baby quickly drops the coin, he will spend money faster than he can earn it!

When it was first announced in 2018 the Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were expecting their first child, people around the world began eagerly anticipating the new arrival. Finally, on May 6, 2019 the news broke that the couple welcomed the new Royal Baby – a healthy boy named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor! Barring any intervention from his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, the royal baby’s title will be lord rather than prince. He is also now seventh in line to the throne!

This special silver penny will be available for only a limited time and will come beautifully presented in its original packaging from the Mint to serve as a lifelong keepsake. If you have a new baby in your family, or have friends welcoming a new baby in 2019 or just simply enjoy following the exciting lives of The Royal Family, then this coin is for you!
