Description

It is a rare occurrence that a coin is issued with a dual effigy featured on the obverse, this makes this coin incredibly special! Pobjoy Mint has received exclusive approval from HM Queen Elizabeth to feature a dual-effigy of her and HRH Prince Philip together. We are incredibly excited to have this permission as it is the first time that this portrait has ever been used on a coin!

The design on the reverse of this coin is based on the official portrait taken on the Queen’s 90th Birthday and is the final portrait in the series of official pictures. This powerful image was taken around Easter at Windsor Castle.  In order to maintain the exclusivity of this coin Pobjoy Mint is proud to issue 10,000 Cupro Nickel, 2,000 Proof Sterling Silver on behalf of the Falkland Islands.

Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip have had an astonishing life together and have dedicated their lives to the duty of monarchy.  The couple first met at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939 when the Queen was just 13- years-old, and began exchanging letters before eventually becoming formally engaged in 1947, following the Queen’s 21st birthday. The royal pair married later in the same year and in November this year will celebrate their Platinum Wedding anniversary. The monarch was crowned just five years after their wedding following the death of her father King George VI, who died aged only 56, and although the transition changed their lives forever the couple have always approached their royal duties with a sense of humour and affection for each other that, over the decades, is testament to their enduring love.

The Queen was born on April 21st so Her Majesty and the love of her life HRH Prince Philip posed for an official photo-shoot at Windsor Castle. The Queen was wearing a striped shirt and a pink cardigan whilst Philip was wearing a funky tie and tweed jacket. The Queen also benefit from having a second Birthday in June, known as her official Birthday, this is to avoid typical British weather during the outdoor elements of the celebrations.
