Description

2017 marked the platinum wedding anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip.  This is the first time in British history a monarch has celebrated this milestone  – and it is happening in the reign of Britain’s longest reigning monarch.  It is yet another milestone in a reign the likes of which will probably never be seen again.  It is for this reason that a coin was released, the likes of which have also never been seen before: to celebrate this first ever anniversary new world first sovereigns were issued – The 2017 Double Portrait Wedding Anniversary Gold Half and Full Sovereign set.

A tribute to HRH Prince Philip – a new Double Portrait Platinum Wedding Anniversary Gold Sovereign

The sovereign coin is often used to celebrate events of great royal significance – especially coronations and royal jubilees – and  in 2017 it was used to celebrate the first Platinum Wedding Anniversary in British royal history.

Prince Philip has a long  and distinguished career of public service alongside The Queen.  Now, in an unprecedented move, that contribution is acknowledged as he takes his place alongside Her Majesty on this gold sovereign coin. This is the very first time double portraits – also known as ‘jugate’ or ‘conjoined’ – have appeared on the gold sovereigns. It is also the first time in the 200 years of the modern sovereign, that a royal consort has had their portrait on a gold sovereign.

The coins that have been released are certain to be subject to considerable demand – and not just from coin collectors. This is a coin we feel will be popular with the wider public as well:  those who will want to join in the celebrations of the Platinum Wedding Anniversary, but also those who will want to pay tribute to Prince Philip who retired in August 2017 having completed a staggering 22,219 solo public engagements over the last sixty-five years!

Struck in solid 22 carat gold, authorised by Tristan da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful celebration – and a world first one at that – of one of our greatest monarchs.

Many of the people buying these coins will want them as a memento of this great royal event.  Those coins will be put away at the back of cupboards or tucked away in sock drawers never to see the light of day again – which in turn will make acquiring these coins on the secondary market very difficult indeed.  Don’t take that risk and order today!
