Royal Mint Mess
The Royal Mint has issued a commemorative £5 Royal Engagement Alderney Crown supposedly showing images of Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton. Do you recognize either of them? Kate's beauty has been transmogrified into the features of a middle-aged frump with bags under her eyes. The Prince has fared slightly better, but his profile can hardly be described as a good likeness. He looks Chinese! As for the prices, they range from £9.99 in a presentation folder (silver?) to £1,550.00 for a Gold Proof Crown (CLICK). What a ripoff!
