The 70th wedding anniversary of The Queen and Prince Philip is both a personal milestone for the couple and a historic one for the nation. They become the first royal couple in British history to reach this landmark anniversary, enjoying a long and happy marriage. It is a record unlikely to be matched in our lifetime, worthy of both respect and celebration.
Such a significant achievement deserves a matching tribute. This limited edition 50mm Proof coin contains five ounces of fine gold and features a new combined portrait by Etienne Millner on its obverse. John Bergdahl’s design for the reverse depicts the heraldic lineage of the two families that became entwined when the young couple married.
*This nostalgic gift is a reproduction of the book released in 1947, containing details and beautiful photographs from the special day.
