Royal wedding coin
The Royal Canadian Mint has issued a couple of unique new coins that will certainly draw attention - from royal watchers if not from serious coin collectors. Both coins are to commemorate the upcoming royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The $20 coin features an engraving of the couple, plus a sapphire coloured stone embedded in fine silver. The 25-cent coin has a full-colour photograph of William and Kate.
We talked about the coins with Bill O'Brien, president of the North York Coin Club. More on the story and an image of the $20 coin can be found here .
