A special coin has been minted for six birthday boys and girls born in Swansea on the 50th anniversary day of the announcement the famous old town was to become a city.
Working with the local registrar service, the council identified half-a-dozen babies born in Swansea on July 3, 2019.
Each of their families were awarded a coin specially minted by Fattorini, specialists in bespoke commemorative items.
Lord Mayor Cllr Peter Black CBE, said: “July 3 was a special day for our city in many ways and we were very pleased to host a visit by HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall to help celebrate.
“But we know that parents of six children now have their own special reasons to celebrate July 3, 2019.
“That’s why we’ve worked with Fattorini to come up with a very limited edition coin which will be a rare memento of an incredibly special occasion for the families.
“It was a lovely occasion to meet the families who came for a special celebration event at the Mansion House.”
Swansea communities have been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the announcement by the Prince of Wales in 1969 that Swansea town was to become a city. The Royal Charter was published on December 10 that year and delivered to the city by the prince the following day.
Cllr Black said: “The celebrations have been coming thick and fast and many local groups and organisations have been commemorating the event. Residents are also getting involved by bidding for golden tickets for amazing events like the Jess Glynne concert, Catherine Zeta Jones’ freedom ceremony and tickets to top shows at the Grand Theatre.
“There’s plenty more to come and we’d encourage everyone to take part.”
