Historic and ornate, St George’s Chapel in Windsor is no stranger to royal weddings, but it’s never staged one like this. His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales is following his heart to marry his fiancée, American actress Meghan Markle. As the nation prepares to welcome Meghan into the fold, claiming her as one of our own, The Royal Mint is excited to release this special commemorative coin. Struck in 925 sterling silver and finished to Proof standard, this £5 coin features an original design created especially for the occasion. Relaxed and informal, Jody Clark’s portrait, created from a sitting with Prince Harry and Meghan at Kensington Palace, captures the obvious warmth between the couple; a modern design that befits a modern romance. Approved by Buckingham Palace, it’s the perfect way to celebrate a royal wedding for the ages.
