In 2017, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip celebrated an astonishing marital milestone: 70 years had passed since their nuptials in 1947.
To celebrate this happy occasion, The Royal Mint has issued this beautiful coin - a touching tribute to an enduring union.
The coin's lavish obverse features 2 elegant profile portraits of the Queen and Prince Philip. Rendered in beautiful detail, they signify the Queen's dual role as both a monarch, and as a wife and mother. The couple look right across the coin to their future together.
The Piedfort design - a rare collector's item - is thicker than average coins. The Royal Mint strikes these coins in extremely limited numbers in sterling silver to premier Proof standard to celebrate special anniversaries.
“This coin is celebrating the longest royal marriage in British history and it is a traditional design with Her Majesty wearing a royal coronet and Prince Philip shown in the supporting position of a royal consort. I am hoping to portray The Queen not only as monarch but as a wife, mother and grandmother. My intention is that this coin makes reference to two sides of The Queen's life: her sense of duty as the longest serving monarch and as head of a large family committed to the future success of the country.” Etienne Millner, image sculptor
