FOUR GENERATIONS, ONE HISTORIC MOMENT
LIMITED EDITION PRESENTATION: 2,000
With the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen's coronation, the 70th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and the 5th birthday of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, 2018 is a busy year of royal celebrations.
It is the first time that The Queen, her son The Prince of Wales, her grandson The Duke of Cambridge and her great-grandson Prince George of Cambridge have been honoured together on an official United Kingdom coin.
In what can only be described as extraordinary roles, the members of the Royal Family have always managed in live 'normal' private lives, while supporting each other in their royal duties and reaching remarkable milestones. Now, as four generations of the Royal Family mark an increasing number of personal and royal occasions, we continue to celebrate these special moments with them.
The reverse of the coin was designed by calligrapher and heraldic artist Timothy Noad. As a celebration of four generations of the Royal Family, it is perhaps unsurprising that recognisable elements from the Royal Badge of the House of Windsor - such as the oak branches and crown - appear in this design. These symbols of family heritage are joined by the initials of each of the four family members, symbolising the bonds between them.
