Description:

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. In commemoration of this astonishing milestone, Downies is delighted to present the opulent 2017 £10 Platinum Wedding Anniversary 5oz Gold Proof: a masterpiece fit for a Queen. Straight from the British Royal Mint, this poignant coin has been struck from five ounces of stunning 99.9% gold, providing collectors with the chance to secure a coin that is as exclusive as it is eye-catching.


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 the country. The reverse design by John Bergdahl shows the coats of arms of both Her Majesty and His Royal Highness, with the words '70 Years of Marriage' proudly emblazoned beneath it. The double arms, notes Bergdahl, 'depicts the heraldic lineage of both families at the time of their union'. A fitting - and appropriately magisterial - design.

With just 175 pieces in existence worldwide, this breathtaking Proof is destined to be enjoyed by the privileged few - and decisive action will be rewarded. Each one of the 175 arrives housed in official British Royal Mint packaging, and is accompanied by a booklet.
