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.
