The £5 coin, which costs up to £1,890 to buy, shows the bride-to-be and her prince “looking lovingly into each other’s eyes”.

Prince Harry, 33, and his American actress fiancee posed for the portraits used on the Royal Mint souvenir during a private sitting at Kensington Palace.

The new coin marks Meghan Markle’s first appearance on a UK coin produced by the Royal Mint.

The Royal Mint said: “Following the announcement of their engagement, the Royal Mint was granted a private sitting with Prince Harry and Meghan at Kensington Palace.

“The setting of their meeting was relaxed and informal, which is reflected in the portrait of the couple.

The pair can be seen looking lovingly into each other’s eyes and highlights the easy familiarity and connection between the royal duo.

This is the second time Harry has featured on a coin – he was the face of an Alderney coin by the Royal Mint in 2005 to mark his 21st birthday.

Harry and 36-year-old Meghan’s Royal Wedding will take place on May 19 in the grand surrounds of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, after getting engaged following a 16-month whirlwind romance.

The coin design was crafted by Jody Clark, who created the current effigy of the Queen in 2015.

Anne Jessopp, the Royal Mint’s chief executive, added: “It has been an honour for the Royal Mint to work closely with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to create the authentic royal wedding coin celebrating this most British of celebrations.”
