    by Wochit

    Prince George doesn't turn 1 year old until next month, and he's already got a substantial new birthday present: It's his own 5-pound royal coin, worth about $136, and the first ever to be minted for a royal on his first birthday. The Royal Mint announced in London today "the nation's gift to Prince George," a 5-pound crown in sterling silver, featuring the royal arms and the year 2014. Only 7,500 will be minted and sold for 80 pounds each, or $136 at the current exchange rate.
