“It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since we welcomed His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge into the world. Adorably mischievous, he has captured the hearts of people all over the world, stealing the show wherever he goes,” the Royal Mint said on its website. “From royal tours with his parents to starting his first day at primary school, he has shown us glimpses of his lively personality and growing interests. Now a big brother to two siblings, Prince George of Cambridge’s fifth birthday falls in a year already full of family celebrations.”

Royals fans can purchase the coin on Royal Mint‘s website for £13. A silver proof version is also available for £82.50, while a celebration sovereign, which will be struck on George’s birthday on Sunday, is priced at £500.
