British Mint releases new coin for royal wedding
(CBS/AP) Britain's Royal Mint has released their latest design of an official coin to commemorate Prince Willian and Kate Middleton's wedding.
The five-pound coin shows the couple facing each other, with the words "William and Catherine" and the wedding date "29 April 2011" surrounding it.
Queen Elizabeth II, William's grandmother, appears on the reverse side of the coin.
Both the couple and the Queen have approved the design. This new coin comes after an engagement one was released a few months ago, which was criticized for baring little to no resemblance to the couple.
The Royal Mint made its first coin to commemorate the royal marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981.
