Four months ago, I posted pictures of the very special commemorative First Day Cover of The Royal Wedding and in the days running up to the big day, the internet communities were abuzz with coverage of the Prince Williams and Kate Middleton. As member of The Royal Forums (website is blocked from access in Brunei), I received an email notification about their Royal Wedding Silver Proof Coin Give Away contest and decided without much deliberation to try my luck. The idea was to Like their Facebook page, post a Twitter link to their forum etc. Long story short, I did everything they asked including convincing my wife to participate too.
Recently you entered the Royal Wedding Silver Proof Coin Give Away contest at www.TheRoyalForums.com. I am pleased to let you know that you are one of our 5 five winners. We will need your mailing address to ship your prize and will be announcing the winners on our forum and on Facebook.
This commemorative crown celebrates the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. It is one of only two UK crown pieces to bear a double portrait commemorating a Royal Wedding day. The first was that of Prince William’s parents — The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
