Originally finished to Proof standard, this 999.9 fine gold five-ounce coin was issued to celebrate the 70th wedding anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. A matching tribute to such a significant milestone, the coin's obverse features Etienne Millner’s combined portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. A 50mm diameter coin, it serves as a relatively large canvas for the portrait, thereby enhancing the viewing experience.
Truly an item to be treasured, only six coins tested at the Trial of the Pyx have been made available for purchase. These unique coins exemplify the quality and accuracy by which The Royal Mint prides itself.
