According to the Crown Cronicles:

The Royal Mint is releasing a coin to celebrate Prince George of Cambridge’s second birthday.

A special 925 sterling silver £5 coin…bears a contemporary St. George and the Dragon image…

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge…approved the design, which is restricted to a limited mintage of just 7,500 coins.

George’s birth was marked with the release of a limited edition penny, for any other child born on the same day as him, and a further 10,000 special silver coins were minted to mark the occasion for the public to buy; they sold out within days.
