In the weeks leading up to the christening of Price Louis, we are reminded of the heritage of which the young price has become a part. Every detail in the preparation of the event honours royal traditions that remain in the bedrock upon which Britain and the Commonwealth are built. From the holy water from the River Jordan, said to be the place of baptism of Jesu, to the use of the Lily Font, the almost two hundred year old vessel used in virtually every royal christening since 1841, to the replica of the 1841 christening gown, tradition and the virtues of duty and service remain at the heart of the British royal family. With the baptism of Prince Louis, we are privileged to know that this heritage is also a part of our own history – a symbol of continuity and growth from which we can all take comfort. These facets of Prince Louis’ christening – and our past and future – now inspire a specially minted keepsake of the event. “The HRH Prince Louis Royal Christening Five Crowns Coin” has been approved by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in honour of their son’s blessing in the sight of God, in the presence of his loving family and royal watchers around the world.

The reverse side of the coin depicts the famed Lily Font, marvellously captured by the Master Minters at The Commonwealth Mint. The cascading water lilies representing purity and new life have such exquisite detail, each new viewing brings a different perspective to admire and enjoy. Designed under the guidance of Prince Albert for the christening of his first child, this remarkable vessel serves as a reminder of the rich history of the British royal family which will endure and flourish as we watch every step of Prince Louis’ journey through life. The pattern behind the font is instantly recognisable as that featured in the blanket in which the Duke and Duchess presented their son to the world. The “knitted” weave of the pattern is an elegant contrast the centuries old font and with the event recorded around the rim of the coin in raised relief, this minted keepsake, like the traditions it honours, will endure in splendid style. High demand is expected for this substantial design so don’t delay, pre-order yours now!
