Photo caption: Press operator Dave Simpson shows off one of the first legal tender coins struck to commemorate the engagement of Britain's Prince William to Catherine Middleton, known as Kate, at the Pobjoy Mint at Kingswood near Reigate southern England. The coin, 1 crown, is issued on behalf of the Isle of Man Treasury and depicts Buckingham Palace with the initials W and K entwined above as a Privy Mark celebrating the engagement.
