Harry and Meghan’s Faces Are On a Canadian Coin
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have photographs, videos and all of their closest friends and family to make memories with on their wedding day—which is just over a week away now. But what about those of us who will be eagerly watching the proceedings unfold in a sleep-deprived haze from Canada?
Luckily, the Royal Canadian Mint is helping memorialize the occasion for those of us at home with a special-edition silver collector coin.

The coin, which was designed in consultation with the soon-to-be newlyweds, was unveiled today at Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health—for a very special reason. It was also announced that the Mint would be making a $25,000 donation to CAMH in honour of Harry, who personally visited the facility last fall. Princess Diana also toured CAMH in 1991.
Designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel, the coin fittingly features three Swarovski crystals to emulate the engagement ring Harry had made for Meghan. It has a face value of $20.
If you’re looking to add one to your collection—it’ll cost you just over $100—you better act fast: only 15,000 are being produced.
