Not long after my UFO coin was released by the Royal Canadian Mint, the coin I designed for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was released. I designed the floral and maple leaf border around the official portrait from their engagement shoot, working three Swarovski crystals into the design. Knowing the Royal Family has a huge following in Canada and abroad, it was exciting to design this coin for this occasion.
As with the UFO coin, once it was released it had an incredible response. I was contacted for a few interviews and had a nice feature in the Ottawa Citizen and a television interview on CTV Ottawa. It’s been a fun couple of months doing some press and having people come by the studio to take photographs and video interviews. Unfortunately, I did not get an invitation to the wedding, but I’m hoping the newlyweds get in touch during their rumoured honeymoon in Canada.
