The $25 sterling silver coin is part of the Silver Hologram Coin Series, which includes 15 different designs or themes. The snowboarding theme is the first for 2008 and the sixth in the hologram series that will continue through the end of 2009. Only 45,000 coins will be minted for each theme.
The British Royal Mint has released a new 2008 commemorative £5 coin celebrating the 60th birthday of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales. The limited edition coin comes in Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions. The commemorative design is rather unusual in that both sides of the coin bear a prominent head portrait, making it a "two-headed" coin.
