In 2013, The Royal Mint issued a £5 crown to celebrate the Royal Christening of Prince George. Commemorative Crowns are issued almost every year, with a unique design for each. It is the first time in 120 years that the reigning monarch has welcomed a great-grandchild who is destined to suceed the throne.
The event was attended by four generations of the Royal Family. Prince George wore a replica of the christening gown worn by more than 60 members of the Royal Family since 1841.
The service lasted 45 minutes and was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Lily Font was used during the ceremony. It is traditionally housed in the Tower of London and is only used for special occassions, including the Christening of Prince George's father, Prince William.
The obverse reverts back to the fourth portrait of the Queen designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, and introduced in 1998.
ELIZABETH II D G REG F D
The reverse features the Lily Font, in which Prince George was christened, with lilies and cherubs and the text:
"To celebrate the Christening of PRINCE GEORGE of CAMBRIDGE 2013"

We play an active part in the secondary market for many platinum, gold and silver products, including commemorative crowns so we would be more than happy to purchase a 2013 (or any other date) crown from you. This obviously means that we may at some point have one for sale, so if you would like to telephone us and place an order we would hope to fulfil it with time.
For current pricing on the gold proof versions of any of the Five Pound Crowns, from 1990 onwards, please use the £5 Gold Coins pages of our "Tax Free Gold" website.
Starting in 2004, the Royal Mint has issued platinum piedfort proof crowns. These are naturally very expensive. We can usually supply them new to order if required, but we prefer to source lower priced ones from the secondary market. Please contact us if you are interested.2013 Coin Sets
