Stephanie and Guillaume Coined

Literally. Today Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie welcomed the president of the Luxembourg Central Bank (BCL) Gaston Reinesch and Serge Kolb, its director, at the palais to officially unveil the commemorative coin for their wedding. The design of the coin has been known for months.

As for the most asked question at the time, why the heck is the Grand Duke photo bombing the coin? He has to, it's the law in Luxembourg that the reigning Grand Duke must appear on all coins.

The coin can be purchased starting tomorrow at the BCL main offices in Luxembourg. Other retailers will probably sell it online afterwards. A corner card presentation pack is available for 10 euros, the coin in a novelty wooden presentation box costs 45 euros.
