The Royal Australian Mint has marked the birth of Prince George with a new 50c coin.
The coin is dedicated to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, the first born son of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who is third-in-line to the British throne.
Prince George Alexander Louis was born on 22nd July 2013 amid intense worldwide attention. “The arrival of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge is an important moment in history,” said Bernie Ripoll MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer.
The coin features a family tree with the initials ‘W’ and ‘C’ above ‘HRH Prince George Born 22.07.2013’, and was designed by the Royal Australian Mint after extensive consultation with Buckingham Palace.
