Sa ika-5th birthday ng anak nina Prince William and Princess Kate na si Prince George, naglabas ang The Royal Mint ng bagong silver £5 coin to celebrate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest son, na magiging future king ng Great Britain.
Noong bininyagan si Prince George noong 2013, nagbigay ng lucky silver pennies ang The Mint sa mga babies na ka-birthday ng prinsipe.
The new silver £5 coin features the legend of St. George and the Dragon and the year “2018”.
Marami na ngang naganap sa buhay ni Prince George tulad nang pagkumpleto nito ng kanyang first year sa Thomas’s Battersea in south London. Gumanap siya bilang isang sheep sa Christmas nativity play ng kanyang school at obsessed ito sa lahat ng bagay na police-related.
George was also pictured playing with a toy gun, toy knife and handcuffs at a polo match in June.
Noong nakaraang April, kasama niya ang kapatid na si Princess Charlotte noong bisitahin nila ang newborn baby brother nila na si Prince Louis.
Nicola Howell, director of consumer business at the Royal Mint, said: “The birth of Prince George altered the course of history in the United Kingdom and we are pleased to be marking the fifth birthday of our future king.”
The brilliant uncirculated £5 coin costs £13. A silver proof version is also available for £82.50, and a celebration sovereign, which will be struck on July 22 2018, is priced at £500.
The souvenir coins are available to purchase from www.royalmint.com. ()
