During the difficult years of austerity after the Second World War, the marriage of the young Princess Elizabeth to the handsome Philip captured the public imagination. 200 million people tuned in to listen to the live radio broadcast of the ceremony, and the world has followed every step of their journey from post-war newlyweds to great-grandparents in the digital age.
This romance has been played out in public, so it is fitting that the platinum anniversary is celebrated with an official United Kingdom coin approved by the Palace and struck for the nation by The Royal Mint. This commemorative coin features two exclusive new designs finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, a higher standard than the coins we use every day. It is presented in a display folder that describes key moments from this royal love story.
