Royal Mint produces Nato piece for Newport summit

The Royal Mint has created a limited edition piece for world leaders at September's Nato summit in Newport.

Only 150 of the bronze commemorative "coins" will be struck at Llantrisant site in Rhondda Cynon Taf, with all 57 Newport schools also being given one each as a memento.

One side features a map of Wales, the other side has the Nato summit logo.

It is not officially a coin as it does not have the Queen's head on it, so is not legal tender.
