A Lifetime of Loyalty Celebrated in 22 Carat Gold

Shortly after their wedding, The Duke of Edinburgh gave up a naval career to support The Queen in her official duties, a sign of his commitment to his new wife. Her Majesty recognised this in her golden wedding anniversary speech in 1997, saying, “My husband has quite simply been my strength and stay all these years, and I owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim.”

Now, celebrating their platinum wedding anniversary, we pay tribute to their enduring partnership with this official UK coin featuring two designs that are a true celebration of the royal couple. The obverse design is a new forward-looking combined portrait by Etienne Millner, while their shared love of horses is captured by John Bergdahl on the coin’s reverse. Every detail of the designs are captured in Proof finish on this 22 carat gold edition of the £5 coin.
