Royal Wedding Commemorative Fiver Costs £13

By Gary Cutlack on at

It looks like David Beckham is remarrying Posh Spice in this commemorative coin for the latest in the long line of royal weddings, with just £13 getting you a coin worth £5. What an amazingly suitable metaphor for the royal family.

And the £13 fiver is the cheapest of the options available from the Royal Mint, with middle-aged royalists able to blow as much as £1,980 on a gold version of the five pound piece, should they really need a version of the coin that more accurately matches the royal stubble colour. There are a couple of silver options for in-between prices too, with the £13 cheapo option the only one that comes in cardboard instead of a nice box. [Royal Mint]
