Australian Coin to celebrate Prince William and Catherine Middleton's Engagement

November 19, 2010

The Royal Australian Mint announced today that it will be minting an official commemorative Australian coin celebrating the Royal engagement of William and Kate.

Prince Charles announced the engagement of his son Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton on the 16th November 2010.

The Mint has kept abreast of all Royal events with past commemorative releases such as The Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, Charles and Diana's Wedding 1981 , the Royal Visit in 2000, the 2002 50th anniversary of Accession to the throne, 2003 anniversary of the Queen's coronation, the Queen's 80th birthday in 2006, the 2006 Royal Visit and the 2007 60th Royal Wedding anniversary just to rattle off a few.

The design and release date of this special coin commemorating the engagement is yet to be announced and it's almost certain one for the Royal Wedding will follow.
