In keeping with tradition, a proclamation of the Royal birth was displayed at the gates of Buckingham Palace. The arrival of Prince George was also celebrated by a 41-gun salute performed by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Green Park and a simultaneous 62-gun salute was executed by the Honourable Artillery Company and the City of London’s Army Reserve Regiment from Gun Wharf at the Tower of London. To coincide with this grand military observance, sounds from the bells of Westminster Abbey enriched the reception.

Following the registration of his birth, the Home Secretary and The Queen’s Private Secretary officially informed State and Commonwealth representatives and overseas dignitaries of the presence of the future King.

Celebrating the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis, The Perth Mint is honoured to commemorate the occasion with the release of a 1oz silver proof coin. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

Set to be a timeless reminder of this historic birth, no more than 10,000 of the HRH Prince George 2013 1oz Silver Proof Coins will be released by The Perth Mint.

The coin’s reverse depicts a sculpted portrait of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cradling and gazing lovingly at their newborn baby. The image is encircled by a ribbon tied in a bow supported by a delicate bouquet of acorns and fleur de lys – symbols from The Duke and Duchess’ Coats of Arms. The inscription IN CELEBRATION OF THE BIRTH OF HRH PRINCE GEORGE, the birth date and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also included in the design.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and monetary denomination.

Each coin released by The Perth Mint is housed in a classic grey presentation case, and presented in a blue-washed box-shipper featuring the same bouquet of acorns represented on the coin’s reverse. Metallic lettering completes the luxurious feel.

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
