Prince George's 1st birthday celebrated with new coin


Prince George, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, celebrates his first birthday today.

To commemorate this special day two limited new coins have been made.

A sterling silver £5 coin, featuring a version of the Royal Arms, and a limited number of gold £500 coins, known as the sovereign, have been produced.

Jenny went to the Royal Mint to get an exciting behind the scenes look as the gold coins were being made.
