It's quite likely you wont recieve anything back for months yet.

It is about as ugly as the coin for Victoria and Daniel's wedding. So C & W are in the best of company (Though I'm not sure if this is really a consolation for them.)
Honestly, is it so difficult to make a coin that looks like the people it supposed to picture? I certainly wouldn't buy this thing.

I do not like this coin!
She looks like she has Mike Tindall' nose.

Blugh, I find that coin absolutely not pretty to look at. Catherine looks 10 years older than she actually is and William looks like your average neighbourhood bad boy. Not a very succesful attempt

No one looks good on coins not even Her Majesty.

This is another picture of the coin (which is slightly different from the other one), but this one looks better, I think : The Commemorative Royal Wedding Coin Revealed! | PerezHilton.com

Yeah, I have a feeling that she'll wear it down. Although I hope she proves us wrong. For her big day, I think it would look much better up.

I like the dress Gucci sketched for Kate, and I could see her wearing something like this for the wedding. It seems to suit her style.

That's an elegant dress, and I could see Kate in something like that.
However I am hoping for hair up and more sparkle.

Not necessarily, some come out better than others.

The problem with faces on coins usually is that to give detail to the facial features, they usually add lines etc to give depth & whatnot but then it just ends up looking like everyone is elderly & overly wrinkly or frowning instead. Lol.

This is lovely- agree something like this is her style, but maybe more accent on the waist-

About the coin...

It's fun to look for potential dress inspirations. This one is unique and with the wide sash sort of reminds me of the Issa dress she wore when the engagement was announced:

I don't care for that dress for the wedding. Although the design is elegant, it looks like something to be worn on the red carpet at an award ceremony rather than a Royal wedding in a huge Cathedral.
