On May 4 2017, Buckingham Palace officially announced that HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh had decided to retire from public engagements, bringing an end to 70 years of service to Queen and country.
Philip, who famously describes himself as “the world’s most experienced plaque unveiler” has undertaken 22,191 solo engagements and given 5,493 speeches in almost seven decades as the Queen’s “strength and stay”.
In celebration of his seven decades of dedicated service, the HRH Prince Philip 70 Years of Service Silver Coin Cover has been issued.
Your cover features The Royal Mint’s highly sought-after HRH Prince Philip 90th Birthday Silver Proof £5 Coin. With a mintage of just 4,599, it was at the time the most limited Silver Proof £5 ever issued. It is still one of the most collectible £5 coins ever released.
But that’s not all. Your cover also carries Royal Mail’s official Diamond Wedding stamps, featuring the Duke alongside the Queen throughout her reign.
What’s more, your cover will also be specially postmarked with the exact date of the Duke’s Birthday, 10th June 2017.
Your cover is one of just 150 to be issued for worldwide distribution.
This makes the HRH Prince Philip 70 Years of Service Silver Coin Cover probably the most limited silver cover you’ll see this year.
When you order, your cover will come hand-numbered within the strict edition limit of just 150, and will be presented in a Deluxe Presentation Folder alongside an accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
Combining the highly sought-after UK Silver Proof £5, official Royal Mail stamps and the most limited edition you’ll likely see this year, the HRH Prince Philip 70 Years of Service Silver Coin Cover will undoubtedly be extremely popular with discerning collectors.
