A Symbol of Strength and Longevity
On the platinum wedding anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, we look back to the years of their births with a carefully selected pair of original Sovereign coins from 1921 and 1926.
Honoured with Two Birth Year Dated Sovereigns
To commemorate this remarkable marriage, a special set containing Sovereigns from the birth years of the royal couple is available, direct from The Royal Mint. The Sovereign was first created in 1489 under Henry VII, before it was later reborn in 1817 as the embodiment of the newly introduced Gold Standard. The Sovereign is now known as a coin unrivalled in quality, accuracy and design. This unique set is accompanied by a booklet charting the royal love story and rich history of The Sovereign coin.
As an enduring symbol of the monarch, The Sovereign is an especially appropriate coin to celebrate this royal marriage defined by strength and longevity. With the longest royal marriage in history and 64 years of public service as the heads of the monarchy, The Queen and Prince Philip are united in their unwavering duty to their country. While they are known for their differing temperaments, their robust partnership has outlasted most modern romances, providing The Queen with the support to become the longest reigning monarch she is today.
