2015 Australian Fifty Cent Coin - Royal Baby of the Duke & Duchess - Royal Collection - HRH Princess Charlotte - Carded and Uncirculated
As the first reigning monarch to ever visit Australia, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been one of Australia’s favourite Royal personages since her visit in 1954. Since its inception in 1965, the Royal Australian Mint has commemorated significant Royal events since that year with specially minted collector coins.
From the Silver Jubilee in 1977 to the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the British monarchy’s memorable milestones, marriages, accessions and anniversaries have been immortalised with special collector editions.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come to grow their own international fanfare as seen with the media frenzy of the birth of their first baby, Prince George, which underlined the global popularity of the young British royals. The birth of their second child was met with the same level of celebration and joy world-wide.
The reverse of the coin depicts baby building blocks, symbolic of the family in which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are building together
The coin design is given an Australian touch with the inclusion of golden wattle to represent the strong relationship between the Royal Family
