Australia, Birth of Prince George Silver Proof Dollar
On the 22nd of July 2013 Prince George was born to Prince William and Princess Catherine. Australia
issued a handsome Silver Proof Crown or Dollar to honour the event. You have the happy couple
with the baby on one side and the delighted Grand Mother, Elizabeth II on the other side.
Struck in 99.9 pure silver this crownsized coin weighs 31.135 grams or a full troy ounce of silver. The
mintage was 10,000 pieces and each comes with a certificate of authenticity and a presentation case from
the Perth Mint.
As the Royal Mint charges about £80 for a crownsized coin in only Sterling Silver, this must be real
value at only £49.50. After all this little infant will one day be our King.
