Description:

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the wedding of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip. In commemoration of this astonishing milestone, Downies is delighted to present the 2017 £20 Platinum Wedding Anniversary Fine Silver Coin. Straight from the British Royal Mint, this poignant coin has been struck from half a troy ounce of stunning 99.9% silver, and represents a tremendous opportunity to commemorate this momentous occasion with the prestige of precious metal!


In 1947, the royal couple were newlyweds in a post-WWII world. Now, they're great-grandparents, and their marriage is in the history books as the British royal union of the longest standing. The coin's obverse design by Etienne Millner contains an unusual double effigy: both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are pictured in profile, gazing forward, a nod to their commitment to their continued prosperity of the country. The reverse design by John Bergdahl shows both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip on horseback, a pastime greatly enjoyed by the royal couple. Notes Bergdahl, “The Queen is riding her favourite horse … and appears very serene, while Prince Philip’s horse is seen pulling to one side … a reflection perhaps of their different natures.”

With a strictly limited edition of 70,000 pieces worldwide and an enthusiastic royal following, this historic coin is sure to be snapped up in an instant – prompt action is recommended to avoid missing out. This terrific gift or keepsake arrives in official British Royal Mint packaging, and is accompanied by a booklet.
