Description:

Downies is delighted to invite collectors to commemorate an incredible milestone in incredible style, with the GB 2017 £500 Platinum Wedding Anniversary Kilo Silver Proof. With 2017 marking 70 years of marriage between Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, this imposing, 100mm Proof represents a tremendous opportunity to commemorate a 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 just 550 in existence worldwide. Destined to be enjoyed by a privileged few, 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.

This breathtaking British legal tender issue will make an excellent keepsake or gift - but its mintage of 550 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.
