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 £10 Platinum Wedding Anniversary 5oz Silver Proof. Straight from the British Royal Mint, this imposing 65mm Proof has been struck from a whopping five troy ounces of stunning 99.9% silver, and represents a tremendous opportunity to commemorate this momentous occasion with a fittingly impressive tribute!

Struck to the British Mint's exacting Proof standards, this exquisite British legal tender issue is as exclusive as it is eye-catching, with its worldwide mintage a miniscule 2,147. With so few available, however, prompt action will be a must to avoid missing out.


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.

For a lucky few, this stunning British legal tender issue will make an excellent keepsake or gift - but its mintage of 2,147 will not last long, especially given its excellent presentation. Housed within official Royal Mint packaging and accompanied by a booklet, this Proof is destined to be loved and cherished for the years to come.
