The Treasury of the Government of Ascension Island have announced a new coin which celebrates the arrival of the new baby daughter to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, HRH Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. She arrived on the 2nd May to a jubilant crowd of well-wishers as well as a very ecstatic royal family.

Approved by her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II, Great Grandmother to the Princess as well as the proud parents, this beautiful coin carries the Royal Coat of Arms, traditionally showing the separate shields of a Royal husband and wife, side by side. On the left of the design is the Duke’s version of the Royal Coat of Arms granted to him by The Queen on his 18th birthday. On the right is the Duchess’s shield from the Middleton family Coat of Arms, granted to the family in 2011 ahead of her marriage. The wording in the surround reads ‘HRH PRINCESS CHARLOTTE OF CAMBRIDGE’.
Struck by the Pobjoy Mint UK, on behalf of the Treasury of the Government of Ascension Island, the commemorative coin is available in cupro-Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, the obverse of each coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadly FRBS.
