2014 Prince George 1st Birthday Five Pound Crown Silver Proof Coin

UK14PGSP 2014 Prince George 1st Birthday £5 Crown Silver Proof Reverse
from
£75.00
The first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George was born on 22 July 2013. To celebrate his first birthday,The Royal Mint released a commemorative silver proof Five Pound coin. The Crowns were only made in this format, with just 7,451 issued in total. The reverse design, by Edgar Fuller, depicts a cruciform version of the Royal Arms first used on a 1953 Coronation crown which was intended to be used throughout the reign of Elizabeth II. While each member of the Royal Family receives their own coat of arms once they turn 18, the Royal Arms represents the whole family, and has only been used once since 1953. The essence of the design relates back to a coin from the reign of George V, Prince George’s namesake. Presenting four shields, two of which contain England’s three lions, one the harp of Northern Ireland, and one Scotland’s lion ‘rampant,’ the traditional flora of each nation is also included; the leek, shamrock, Tudor rose, and thistle. The original 1953 crown saw Wales depicted on British coinage for the first time. The obverse features the fourth official effigy of Prince George’s grandmother, The Queen, by Ian Rank-Broadley. This £5 is of .925 sterling silver, with a milled edge and diameter of 38.61 milimetres.
