Description:

With this year marking an incredible 70 years of marriage between Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Downies is delighted to present this beautiful tribute, straight from the British Royal Mint!

Struck from 28.28g of sterling silver, the exquisite 2017 £5 Platinum Wedding Anniversary Silver Proof is as exclusive as it is eye-catching, with its maximum worldwide mintage a mere 15,950. Despite its limited-edition status, however, it is available at a price to please. This official tribute is well within your grasp – if you act quickly!


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 the continued prosperity of their 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.”

The tantalising combination of exclusivity, affordability and poignancy of this charming commemorative will no doubt create a perfect storm for collectors, so prompt action is highly recommended – especially given its fine presentation, in official Royal Mint packaging with an accompanying booklet.

After all, this British legal tender issue may embody the essence of love and loyalty, but it won’t wait around.

  • Struck from 28.28g of 92.5% silver by the British Royal Mint
  • The coin's obverse design features both Queen and Prince Consort in a rare double effigy!
  • Strictly limited worldwide mintage of just 15,950 pieces – exclusivity guaranteed!
  • Housed in official British Royal Mint packaging, and accompanied by a booklet
