Townsville Bulletin - - News -

BRI­TAIN’S Royal Mint has un­veiled the de­sign for an of­fi­cial coin to com­mem­o­rate Prince Wil­liam and Cather­ine Mid­dle­ton’s wed­ding.

The £ 5 ($ A8.02) coin, pic­tured, shows the cou­ple in pro­file fac­ing each other, sur­rounded by a bor­der that reads ‘‘ Wil­liam and Cather­ine’’ and their wed­ding date, ‘‘ 29 April 2011’’.

The im­age of Queen El­iz­a­beth II ap­pears on the re­verse side.

The Royal Mint said on Thurs­day that the cou­ple and the Queen have ap­proved the de­sign.

A pre­vi­ous coin to mark the en­gage­ment had drawn crit­i­cism that the de­sign bore lit­tle re­sem­blance to the cou­ple.
