Royal Mint will issue a special £5 coin to mark the fifth birthday of Prince George, featuring a George and the Dragon design by Jody Clark.

A statement from The Royal Mint read:

'Five years have passed since the gun salutes were fired in his honour and the bells of Westminster Abbey rang out in celebration. Since then the nation has followed the progress of the young prince as he has enjoyed the milestones of a child’s young life. Born into the media spotlight, he has also stolen the limelight during official visits with his parents, meeting dignitaries and winning the hearts of the public as far afield as Canada and New Zealand.'
