In 2017 the nation joined together with Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip, as they became the first royal couple in our history to celebrate their Platinum Wedding anniversary.
We will never, in our lifetimes, celebrate another Royal Platinum Wedding Anniversary. So to mark this record-breaking occasion the Platinum Wedding Photographic Coin features an original wedding portrait of Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh from the archives of the National Portrait Gallery.
Struck in crown size, following in the tradition of Royal Commemoratives, and to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality the coin has a flawless mirror-like finish. The reverse depicts the initials of the royal couple, E&P, presented either side of the Royal Coat of Arms. The obverse shows the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by British and Commonwealth coin designer Raphael Maklouf.
