In 2017, the nation came together to celebrate the Platinum Wedding Anniversary of The Queen and Prince Philip – the first royal couple in British history to mark such a milestone!
To celebrate this historic, record-breaking occasion a new limited edition photographic coin has been issued FREE as a gift to the nation.
The coin features an original wedding portrait of the royal couple from the National Portrait Gallery. It depicts their initials, E&P, presented either side of the Royal Coat of Arms.
Struck in the traditional crown size of royal commemoratives to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish. The reverse depicts the inscription “70 years of Strength and Stay”, a reference to the tribute The Queen made to Prince Philip on the occasion of their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The obverse features a new effigy of The Queen by British and Commonwealth coin designer Raphael Maklouf.
We will never again, in our lifetimes, celebrate another Royal Platinum Wedding Anniversary.
