The main goal of a new digital currency is to be not only a gift to the couple, but also provide support to the charities of royal couple's choice and to help fund a unique “Royal Wedding edition” of the Crown and Country Magazine.

CEO of ICO Rocket Shahar Namer elaborated, that the Royal Coin “was born out of goal of engaging people to be a part of Royal Wedding in an entirely new and modern way” and that it has a point of supporting three good causes as a gift to the royal couple.
