A Story of Love and Loyalty - Limited Edition Presentation of 15,000
As Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip reach their platinum wedding anniversary, The Royal Mint mark a very personal milestone for the couple and celebrate 70 years of marriage. A platinum wedding anniversary is a significant event for any couple. For two people who have lived their lives under the glare of public and media scrutiny, it is a testament to their unwavering devotion, strength of character and good humour.
Two sides of this world-famous couple are brought to life on this Silver Proof £5 coin. Etienne Millner’s combined portrait on the obverse represents a sense of duty, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh supporting Her Majesty The Queen in his role of royal consort. On the reverse, John Bergdahl’s equestrian portrait captures the couple sharing their love of horses side-by-side.
