1925 Gold Sovereigns  ....
One of the most unusual facts about 1925 sovereigns is that in 1949, 1950 and 1951, the Royal Mint produced sovereigns, but instead of preparing new dies with George VI's head, and with the correct date, they lazily re-issued George V sovereigns da

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Silver Coin 2015

The new coin will be available in silver - in keeping with the long-established tradition of crossing a newborn baby’s palm with silver to confer good health and prosperity - and also in gold to mark the royal celebration.

John Berghadl, the engraver who designed a similar coin for Prince George's christening, has created the coin, which has been approved by Charlotte's parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as her great-grandmother the Queen, and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne.

The coin is decorated with harp-playing cherubs encircled by swags of lilies – design elements shared with George's christening coin to symbolise the link between the royal siblings.

A baroque-style oval frame, or ‘cartouche’, at the centre of the new coin bears an inscription: To celebrate the Christening of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge 2015.

Inspiration for the design of both coins was taken from the lily font that has traditionally been used in the baptism of royal babies since Queen Victoria’s time.

The baroque style is often featured in royal artwork and traditions.
