Royal fans seeking memorabilia for last-minute holiday gifts got what they wanted on Monday – an official set of William and Kate crockery and a commemorative coin.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are due to marry in April in the biggest wedding of the young century, do not personally appear on the new Royal Wedding china. But they are featured on one side of the coin, with William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, on the other side.

The crockery collection, which includes a tankard ($54), eight-inch plate ($62) and pill box ($39) in English fine bone china, is patterned in hearts, white ribbons and doves.

The Royal Wedding range is available online at royalcollectionshop.co.uk or at the official shops at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and the royal estates of Balmoral, Highgrove and Sandringham. Profits go to the Royal Collection Trust.

The commemorative £5 ($7.80) Alderney coin can be ordered from the Royal Mint's Web site, royalmint.com. "The inspiration for the design came from photographs of the couple at a sporting event – the play on the traditional portrait is that Prince William is seen in profile, alluding to his Royal status," according to a statement.
