The design of the coins has been approved by HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Her Majesty the Queen and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Each coin is available in two weights, 5 oz (156.295 g or 5.025 t/oz) or 1 Kg (31.151 t/oz), minted in fine 24ct Gold (up to 999.9) or Silver (999.0 fineness).
