Elizabeth II, £5 Silver Crownsized (The Queen & Prince Philip) Proofs 1997

Prince Philip and the Queen got married in 1947 and he has been a fantastic consort for Her Majesty. The Queen is on every coin, but Prince Philip has only been on very few. The first coin that featured Prince Philip was the 25 Pence piece or Crown issued in 1972 for the Wedding Anniversary. There was no portrait but just two initials ‘E & P’ under a crown. In 1997 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £5 piece for the Golden Wedding of the Queen and Prince Philip and this time his portrait did appear on the coin. You have the Queen wearing her crown and Prince Philip standing beside her. The other side has their two coats of arms under a crown with an anchor below. The first coin to show two conjoined busts was in the reign of William & Mary in 1689. We have both of these important crownsized pieces, one a crown or five shillings and the other £5 but both in Proof Sterling Silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80-£100 for a Silver Proof crownsized coin. Both are not easy to find and in Choice Proof condition and struck in Sterling Silver, the finest silver that was used for coins. Supplies are limited and it is a great way to honour H.R.H Prince Philip and of course, H.M. The Queen, after all, how many couples have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary?

Elizabeth II, £5 Platinum Wedding Piedfort 2017

In 2017 the Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their Platinum Wedding Anniversary, 1947-2017. To honour this most important event the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 coin in Proof, Sterling Silver. For their VIP Collectors, they also issued this coin in double thickness Sterling Silver called a Piedfort. This coin has the Queen on horseback and was sold by the Mint at £155.00. The first 500 were sold to a marketing company in the United States. They had them protectively slabbed and graded, this one is 70 out of 70 just as perfect as you can get. The label records both the grade and the fact that it is one of the first 500 pieces struck. But what they haven’t played up is the reverse of the coin. It portrays the Queen and Prince Philip in a close-up conjoined portrait after 60 years of marriage. Royal Mint issue price £155.00 plus at least £15.00 extra for slabbing it, but instead of costing you £170.00, it can be yours for just £110.00! The portrait alone is worth the cost…
