Commemorative medal for William and Kate’s Royal Wedding

200 year old Birmingham Mint released a commemorative medal for Prince William and Kate's royal wedding. But it seems that Birmingham Mint has been too generous on the Prince's hair. William did inherit his father's receding hairline. It's unlikely that the 28 year old prince will have a full head of hair that he does on the medal designed to commemorate his marriage.

The medals will carry the words "Celebrating the wedding of HRH Prince William & Catherine Middleton." Birmingham Mint even said that the artist made a 'very accurate' image of the prince. There was a problem with the initials which spelled "WC" but was later reversed.

The first 1.5in medal will be sold for £5 on Wednesday and hopes to sell 100,000 pieces.
