A unique chance to own the Royal Wedding year set that was never issued at the time and celebrate the longest royal marriage in British history
As the nation celebrates The Queen and Prince Philips Platinum Wedding Anniversary this year, it seems remarkable, given the significance of The Queen's record-breaking reign, that no commemorative coins were struck in 1947 to celebrate Princess Elizabeth's marriage to Philip Mountbatten.

A historical oversight is finally corrected
In 1947 no commemorative crown was issued to celebrate the royal wedding, neither was an official 1947 year coin set issued. At last this oversight is being corrected. Now, 70 years after the royal couple’s wedding day a complete set of the eight original coins from 1947 have been brought together, with the Royal Platinum Wedding Anniversary Crown to form a definitive collector’s set.

The 1947 Platinum Wedding Prestige Coin Set has only been made possible by our coin experts bringing together all eight original coins of The Queen and Prince Philip's Wedding Year in celebration of their remarkable 70-year marriage.

Layered in pure Palladium Platinum
The 1947 Platinum Wedding Anniversary set combines all eight British coins issued in 1947, the year of the Queen and Prince Philip's wedding. It includes the regal silver half-crown, the ‘lucky’ silver sixpence, and the majestic Britannia penny. What makes this set truly exceptional is that each of these coins has been beautifully restored and layered in pure palladium platinum. Platinum is one of the most prestigious metals in the world – the ultimate symbol of longevity and luxury, and of course, significantly matches the royal anniversary that these coins celebrate.

As eight of the coins in this set were issued in 1947 they bear the definitive portrait of Her Majesty's father, King George VI, on the obverse by Royal Mint engraver Thomas Humphrey Paget.

Pride of place, the ninth coin in the set is the 'Struck On The Day' Platinum Wedding Anniversary Crown layered in pure palladium platinum to match the anniversary that it celebrates. Officially approved by Buckingham Palace, the motif depicts the rare conjoined effigy of The Queen and Prince Philip and it was struck on the actual day of the couple's platinum wedding anniversary - the 20th of November 2017.

Subject to a strict limitation of just 199 sets
Due to the scarcity of these original coins, all minted 70 years ago, only 199 of these sets are being released. The excitement surrounding Her Majesty's Platinum Wedding celebrations means a sell-out is anticipated.

Don't miss this rare chance to own a set that was never issued at the time and a unique celebration of the longest royal marriage in British history. Order now!
