The Maximum Coin Mintage is the maximum number of the coins that will be issued. ><><><><><><><><><><>< Below is a Transcript of the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) {no Coa with Listing}: A Royal Welcome This is a year of Royal celebrations, for not only does Her Majesty The Queen mark the 60th anniversary of her Coronation in 2013, but also the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcome their first baby Their child will be third in line to the throne, the great-grandchild of a beloved monarch.

Many traditions surround a royal birch, including a 41-gun salute. A birth announcement is posted 011 the gates of Buckingham Palace, usually simply stating the health of the mother and sex of the baby. And although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very modern royals, accepting of public interest, they may be relieved that the tradition of the Home Secretary attending the birth ended with the arrival of Princess Alexandra in 1936. The Queen is the first reigning monarch in 120 years to greet a great-grandchild destined to succeed the throne.

Queen Victoria welcomed her great-grandsons Edward VIII and the Queen's own father, George VI. A Masterpiece, reborn As befits such an important event, we call on our most special coin design. George first appeared on English coins with the George nobles, gold coins issued during the reign of Henry VIII.

In 1817 Benedetto Pistrucci, famed engraver, created a St. George and the dragon design for the coins of George III. It has become a numismatic classic, gracing the golden Sovereigns of almost every monarch since. And to this day, Pistrucci's St George, remodelled (remodeled) by Percy Metcalfe, sits at the heart of the George Cross, the highest honour (honor) awarded to civilians for gallantry. On only a few occasions has Pistrucci's masterpiece been struck in anything other than gold.

One precious moment in time, given forever Silver has been coveted and desired for thousands of years, its soft gleam and gentle beauty long believed to speak of purity, of longevity and of strength. In myth and legend silver has magical properties, lending protection to its bearer, combatting (combating) evil, reflecting the pure and simple energies of nature. It has been given to bring luck to newborns and newlyweds. And prior to the marriage of Queen Victoria in 1840, royal brides wore gowns heavily embroidered with silver thread.

Today, silver is the epitome of good taste, simple and stylish, given to mark the most important occasions, destined to be cherished, admired and valued for many years to come; just as this most special of coins.
