William and Kate coin baffles buyers

The design for a Royal Mint coin commemorating the union of Prince William and Kate Middleton has received a lukewarm reception, because the couple are barely recognisable.

The image is based on a picture taken at a polo match, but Ms Middleton, in particular, appears older and to have gained weight.

The £5 coin can be ordered for between £9.99 and £1,550, depending on whether 22-carat gold or nickel is used.
