A Scottish baby born on the same day as Prince George has been gifted a special commemorative coin to mark the newest royal's first birthday.

Ava Malcolm, from Glasgow, is one of just 12 babies from across the UK chosen by The Royal Mint to receive the sterling silver £5 coin bearing the heraldic Royal Arms design.

The coins were struck in honour of the future monarch whose first birthday will be celebrated on Tuesday.

Ava was among 1,700 babies who were given a silver penny by the Royal Mint on the birth of Prince George on July 22 last year.

She was accompanied by her mother, Karen Malcolm, to receive her gift at a presentation in London's St James' Park.

Shane Bissett, director of commemorative coin and bullion at The Royal Mint, said: "The birth of Prince George of Cambridge was a joyous occasion not just for their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but also for the whole nation.

"As he turns one we wanted to mark this historical moment with Ava, who shares this special birthday, with a commemorative sterling silver £5 coin she can treasure forever.

"The choice of a silver coin is significant too as crossing the precious metal across a baby's palm is a way to wish them wealth and good health throughout their life, whilst the £5 coin is a favourite for royal celebrations".
