On top of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry–infused coffee mugs, cardboard cutouts, and even replicas of the future bride's engagement ring, there's yet another souvenir on the market to top off your royal wedding fan collection—the couple's official royal coin.

The Royal Mint, a major coin producer and distributor in the United Kingdom and beyond, just launched a commemorative silver £5 coin ($6.81), engraved with the silhouettes of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their wedding date. And, if "adorable currency" were a thing, then this one takes the cake, forever and always.

The silver surface features a depiction of the lovebirds based on a photo from their public engagement announcement last November in the gardens of Kensington Palace. Both Markle and Harry's coin doppelgängers are sporting the same outfits from this event, with the future bride in her notorious white Line the Label wrap coat and the redheaded royal donning a suit and tie. In the coin portrait, which was created by designer Jody Clark, the pair are smiling softly and looking at one another while Markle holds on to Prince Harry's arm. BRB, ordering 10.

The other side of the coin, fittingly enough, features a close-up of the ever-regal Queen Elizabeth II. Naturally, it received Buckingham Palace's approval.

This commemorative currency is made from 925 sterling silver, and also comes in 22 carat gold. Either option is encased inside a black box with a certificate of authenticity. Although the new silver proof coin itself is only worth £5, it actually costs a pretty penny—£82.50, or about $112.40. The gold proof version will set you back about $2,695 (£1,980). Or, you can get your royal coin fix by pre-ordering the Brilliant Uncirculated standard version, which comes with a mini booklet about the couple, for $17.69.

But act fast—the Royal Mint only produced 15,000 editions of the silver proof coin, thus making this an even more valuable and completely necessary purchase to contribute to your Prince Harry and Meghan Markle fandom (as if you needed any validation). The Royal Wedding collection coins are currently available for purchase on the Royal Mint's website (and yes, they do offer international shipping).

With less than three weeks until the May 19 royal wedding, we can only imagine what other memorabilia Prince Harry and Markle fans will come up with. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle-shaped earrings, anyone?!
