We are incredibly proud of this tri-colour and have spent a lot of time making every flower in the design relate to HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip’s major wedding anniversaries together. The three circles of the coin are comprised of Silver Platinum Plated, Silver Gold Plated and Proof Fine Silver. The outer circle represents the 25th Silver anniversary and shows Irises to represent promise, faith and wisdom. Ivy, representing wedded love, fidelity and affection is also depicted along with Myrtle, a Hebrew emblem of marriage. The Myrtle present in Her Majesty’s wedding bouquet was actually grown from the Myrtle in Queen Victoria’s!
The centre circle represents the 50th Golden Anniversary and shows Roses to represent inner joy, happiness and true love. Sweet Pea and Honeysuckle are also present as they are the flowers that represent the birth months of The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh respectively.
The inner circle represents the 70th Platinum Wedding Anniversary and shows an Orchid representing love and long life. The obverse features a dual effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II alongside her husband HRH Prince Philip in the central ring which is designed by and exclusive to Pobjoy Mint. Sweet Pea and Honey Suckle are also repeated on the centre ring. The issue limit of this coin is set at 1,947 (to mark the year of their marriage) and has a $10 value on the reverse.Show more
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.
