Prince George of the United Kingdom is turning 5 on Sunday, and he just got an amazing present right before his birthday!
This month has been a very busy one for George. Last week, he attended the christening of his baby brother Prince Louis, who was born in April. A few weeks before that, George enjoyed watching his father Prince William play in a charity polo match at Beaufort Park. On top of that, George also attended the Trooping the Colour celebration with his family.

Just before his big day on Sunday, George was given a truly special present from the Royal Mint, which just announced that in honor of the heir to the throne’s birthday, they will be issuing a commemorative coin (worth five pounds in the UK, $6.50 US) that anyone can buy.

The coin will include an image of St. George, a patron saint of England, fighting a dragon. The coin is meant to symbolize the victory of good over evil through courage, and a similar coin was released just before George’s second birthday as part of The Progress of a Prince coin collection.
