Royal baby coin - from £16 @ RoyalMint

Found 4th May 2015
You can share the joy of the Cambridges – so popular the world over, as the demand for any official coin honouring them has proven. As a new baby joins their family, a baby who is fourth in line to the throne, you can add this wonderful £5 coin to your collection or memory box. The design has been specially created by John Bergdahl, the experienced artist behind the coin for the christening of Prince George – what a beautiful pair they would make to celebrate the new addition.

Prices start at £13 + p&p £3 for the silver with no box
£80 for silver proof coin in a box
£500 for Royal Sovereign, struck on the day
£1500 for £5 gold proof coin in box.

So £16 for a silver £5 coin might not be the best deal. But its a new royal baby

Get yours fast as they are limited

There's one born every minute....... babies and suckers...apparently...a double dose

Not quite as good as £20 for £20 coin like when Prince George was born.

Royal mint scamsters...

Will they do another when they announce the name?
BTW - this is not a deal!

What a beautiful piece and worth every penny lol

Extracting the urine out of all us...... £16 squid for a £5 coin really !

How wonderful.

I'm certain that there are people whose passion it is to collect things like this, so it is for them to judge the value of this.

The more expensive choices are all limited to a few hundred, so may have some speculative value as well as being interesting to collectors.
I think the £13 one is not a limited run, and enough will be minted for whatever demand there is.

One for the collectors, so I'm not going to scoff at it as I know very little about it.

Here's a better idea than buying this - just give £5 to charity and you'll be £11 better off.

There`s some top muppets about!

They even do a GOLD version for £1,800.00 if you really want to push the boat out...

Oh no, not more monarch worship. ಠ_ಠ

Yeah, I think I've seen some on one of those 'compulsive hoarders' programmes.

A few years ago when I brought my first gold coins I had a look at the numismatic side of things like this and, unfortunately these "commemorative" coins tend to go down in value and stay down. Even when the official issue limit isn't reached it's usually still cheaper to buy them second hand and in mint condition from a dealer than it would have been to buy them new from the mint itself.

But anyway: Voted cold because this is just tat and I'm a republican.

I'll wait and buy a no more monarchy coin

The site has spoken! Freezing cold

Make money whenever they can. Rip off

royal mint did not mint a coin when my child was born.....so why should i buy a coin to celebrate someone else baby ?

I'm sure these will increase in value over time.

cold!!! citizen not a subject thank you

There are people who get more excited when the royals have a baby than when someone in there own family does, what a sad sutyation that many are brainwashed into groveling at another family as if there more important than there own, even the royals must think the people waiting outside the hospital for days to get a 2 seconed glimse at another persons baby are very sad.

Took the words right out of my mouth

Who even cares about the royals lol. doesn't interest me one bit if they had a baby or not

Why do people in the age of crypto currency, KickStarter, etc etc, still put up with people BORN into unelected power? Sell them to the American tourists who don't have to pay 4 million pound for this child's bedroom to be decorated when the rest of the country is still living in austerity and will never in their life have £4 million to spend on ANYTHING never mind a decorating job....

(I did well not to swear !)

Collectibles are never collectible, a big fat waste of money. £16 for £5..... Any one dumb enough to hand over £16 for a fiver clearly has no clue a lout value for money. I wonder if these people would by a genuine £1 coin off me for the bargain price of £7? Any takers, highly collectible

Would give £5 to charity to help some disabled children

According to the BBC the princess gave birth to a baby girl - do us peasants give birth to fully fledged Minions then?

So £16 for a silver £5 coin might not be the best deal.


So where's the deal? Why post it if you know it's not a deal?

There were no **** coins made when my little girl was born and she's just as important as those self centered morons.

£1800 good investment
