At last! The Royal Mint has released a coin, worth five British pounds (about $8), in honor of the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton - its first ever for a royal engagement, and a design officially approved by the queen and her grandson. Only question is, Who exactly modeled for it? Is that . . . Barbara Bush and Al Gore III? Sissy Spacek and JFK? Melissa Leo and Benjamin Bratt? If you can figure it out, tell us by e-mailing us at
