The Royal Mint has created a unique piece of Royal Wedding history like no other.
Only 40 of the 22 carat gold kg coins, featuring a traditional portrait of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton, have been struck.
Made from a kilogram of solid gold and selling for £40,000, it is the first time in the Royal Mint`s 1,000 year history that kilo coins have been made to celebrate a Royal Wedding day.
Each kilo coin is 10 centimetres in diameter, nearly four and a half times the size of a standard £1 coin, as you can see in the image above.
With such limited numbers of each being produced, they are destined to be added to the collections of royal enthusiasts around the world, by those looking to commemorate the special day with a genuinely remarkable souvenir.
Kevin Clancy, Director of the Royal Mint Museum said: `A kilo coin is extremely rare and unlike any other coin created by the Royal Mint due to its size and weight, which are governed by law. Only very special events are therefore commemorated with a coin of this size.`
The kilos will be available on a first come, first served basis, from the Royal Mint website.
