Niall Horan’s brother plans to cash in on the One Direction fame by creating a coin as a tribute to his son.

Greg Horan and his wife Denise will issue the coins next week to coincide with the first birthday of their son Theo, on July 16th.

The 20ct gold-plated coins will be available to buy online for €22, with the promise of a Twitter follow from baby Theo’s account.

The coins, that will come in a 'beautifully designed box' could also be personally delivered by members of the Horan family.

The little boy tweeted the news from his Twitter account @TheoHOfficial, with the help of his family.

“My uncle just contacted my mum and suggested a coin with my head on one side and a love message on the other. WOW,” was the first message posted.

It was followed with; “He says we should put some money aside from this to give to children's charities. My uncle is so nice and considerate.”

Another tweet hinted that Niall himself could deliver the coins.

“Uncle says some should be delivered to fans homes as a surprise. I wonder who would be delivering them?????????”

He also suggested that the currency could be an investment for the future.

“Theo loves listening to One Direction music. We think he will be a singer... Maybe that would make the coins very valuable in time to come .”

Niall is currently on a world tour with One Direction, who play their last European show in Portugal tomorrow night.

The band will then take a short break before the North American leg of the ‘Where We Are’ tour kicks off in August.
