Critics Slam Royal Wedding Coin

Saturday, December 25, 2010


An official coin of Prince William and Kate Middleton wedding has been receiving so many critics due to the poor design. the coin has been minted by Royal Mint and has been authorised by the Channel Island of Alderney with a denomination of £5. The reverse design will feature Prince William and Catherine Middleton portrait by Matthew Bonaccorsi. The obverse will feature the Queen’s portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. The special betrothal design has received Royal approval from Prince William and Her Majesty The Queen.

Images of the couple on the memento bear little resemblance to either the prince or his 28-year-old betrothed. Middleton appears plump in the face and lips and has bags under her eyes. Some critics claim William looks like Al Gore. Ingrid Seward of Majesty magazine told Britain's Sky News on Thursday it was "ridiculous" that the images were so poor. But Dickie Arbiter, a former royal spokesman, says it's often difficult to produce accurate images on a coin.

In my opinion, the design that we can found in Daily Mail News is far much better then the official coin design. I am not sure where they get this but its sure more beautiful then the official design. Wish Royal Mint will change to a better design. What do you think?
