This year Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh celebrate the RAREST Royal anniversary EVER – their 70th wedding anniversary.
Celebrating a 70th wedding anniversary is incredibly rare. In fact it's so rare we've calculated as few as 60 people in the whole of the UK will celebrate theirs the year - that literally makes Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh one in a million!
Now to commemorate this historic Royal occasion, a brand new Platinum Wedding Anniversary Silver Proof £5 Coin has been issued.
One-year-only double portrait
The coins obverse features a brand new, one-year-only double portrait of the Royal couple, sculpted by renowned artist Luigi Badia. Whilst the reverse is designed by ex-Royal Mint engraver and coin designer Michael Guilfoyle and carries the couple’s initials with a border inspired by The North Rose Window of Westminster Abbey – where their wedding took place in 1947.
Fully approved by Buckingham Palace, and The Queen and Prince Philip themselves, this coin is expertly struck from 925/1000 silver and is finished to a pristine proof quality - the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins.
You coin also comes displayed in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Extremely limited edition
What’s more, it is limited to just 2,500 worldwide and considering the popularity of issues commemorating British royalty, demand for this issue is expected to be high. In fact, The Queen's Sapphire Jubilee British Isles and UK Silver Proof Coins, with similar edition limits, SOLD OUT in a matter of weeks.
