Elizabeth II, £5 Wedding Platinum Proof, 2017
In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a handsome £5 to celebrate the
Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary, their
Platinum. They called it ‘a story of love and loyalty’, as royalists,
it is something we totally agree with. And for once the Royal Mint
issued a coin that we think fully reflects the time and the mood.
You have the conjoined busts of the Queen and Prince Philip on
one side and the Queen on horseback on the other side. The certificate
this comes with the coin says there is a maximum of 15,950
to be issued, but if previous Royal Mint issues are anything to go by, the mintage will be much lower.
Each striking Proof coin comes in the Royal Mint packaging with certificate. This is a rather beautiful piece
and supplies are limited.
