Enhanced with a SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS to highlight the royal engagement.
A Swarovski element glittering in sapphire is breathtaking against pure silver as it echoes Catherine Middleton’s engagement ring. The names of the bride and groom laser-engraved along the coin’s edge add an endearing and unique touch to this limited keepsake.

Congratulations to the world’s favourite bride and groom
Prince William and Catherine Middleton first met in 2001 while studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. During the course of their years at St. Andrews, the pair grew increasingly closer, and by the time they graduated in 2005, it was well-known they were a couple. Observers have long speculated the two would marry, and although the engagement came as no surprise, it has elated many as it promises to be the most highly anticipated Royal wedding of recent memory.
On April 29, 2011, people across Britain, the Commonwealth, and the world celebrated this exciting moment with the newlyweds.
His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton became engaged during a trip to Kenya in October 2010. Prince William carried with him the engagement ring—a stunning 18-carat sapphire surrounded by fourteen diamonds which had previously belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales. Prince William asked Catherine to marry him in a manner she later said was “very romantic, and... very personal.”
Clarence House announced the engagement to the world on November 16, 2010.
