First of all, did you know that Pez is an Austrian company? We certainly didn’t.

On the occasion of the upcoming marriage between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, from one European entity to another, the candy maker is honoring the British royal family by releasing an extremely limited set of Pez dispenser. So limited, in fact, that it is the only one of its kind.

The unique royal wedding Pez duo will be auctioned off on eBay beginning May 7th, and the auction will last until May 13th. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes and requests to children with life-threatening illnesses.

“Make-A-Wish and Pez are a perfect match,” said Gabriele Hofinger, head of marketing at Pez, in a statement. “Both Pez and Make-A-Wish have been dedicated to bringing smiles to children's faces for generations. We are happy to contribute to making more wishes come true.”

Pez also partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2011 for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. To give you a sense of how much people are willing to spend when it comes to royal memorabilia, a Connecticut man paid $13,360 for the O.G. duo at auction.

So if you’ve ever wanted to eat small, sugary Austrian bricks from the (potentially very expensive) necks of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, this is your time to make it rain currency. Go forth and bid, good people.
