Buy a 2017 Platinum Wedding Anniversary Five Pound Piedfort Platinum Proof Coin

Scarce 999.5 platinum piedfort Crown coin issued in 2017 to celebrate the Platinum Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip. The pair married in November 1947 at Westminster Abbey, London. Seventy years on, the couple reached a remarkable anniversary. The Royal Mint celebrated the longest royal marriage in British history with a collection of coins, struck for the occasion. This platinum Five Pound, like the other coins in the release, features a one-off double portrait of the Queen and her Consort, both facing right. It's the work of sculptor Etienne Millner, also known for her 2015 Sir Winston Churchill coins. Double portraits are rarely seen on the obverse of British coinage, with this being the first time since 2007 that it has occurred. The reverse of this piece shows a heraldic motif by veteran British coinage artist John Berghdahl, combining the arms of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh above the inscription '70 YEARS OF MARRIAGE · 2017 ·'. The edge reads ‘FELICES JUNXIT CONUBALIS AMOUR’. This pre-owned £5 coin comes from a very limited presentation of just 125 pieces struck by the UK’s national mint. It’s composed of 94.20 grams of fine platinum and finished to proof standard. We’ll supply your pre-owned 2017 Platinum Wedding piedfort Crown coin in its original presentation box with the numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. A rare piece with two fascinating designs.
