THE engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton is set to be commemorated with a silver £5 coin - the first ever Royal Engagement coin produced during the long history of the Royal Mint. A Royal Mint spokesperson said, "The inspiration for the design came from photographs of the couple at a sporting event - the play on the traditional portrait is that Prince William is seen in profile, alluding to his Royal status." The design has been approved by Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and is available now to order from the Royal Mint's website.
