NEW COINS: The coin was created to mark the Queen’s 70th wedding anniversary

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh will appear on the money as they become the first British royal couple to celebrate a platinum wedding anniversary.

The Queen and Prince Philip got married at Westminster Abbey in front of 2,000 guests on November 20, 1947.

And now the new coins with both their faces on will be released next month.

ROYAL: The coin is to mark the Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary


“Britain celebrates this unique personal moment in royal history”


Royal Mint spokesman

The Royal Mint said they appear in a double profile portrait on one side of the coin, while the reverse has them on horseback and is edged with the words “wedded love has joined them in happiness 1947-2017”.

A spokesman said: “They have built an enduring partnership that is an inspiration to us all, as Britain celebrates this unique personal moment in royal history.”

The combined portrait was designed by sculptor Etienne Milner to represent a sense of duty – with the Duke supporting the Queen in his role of royal consort.

MONEY: The new coin will be released next month

The horseback image was created by artist John Bergdahl to reflect the couple’s passion for all things equestrian.

The Royal Mint said the collection – which includes a golf proof, fine silver, silver proof and a brilliant uncirculated coin ranges in price from £5 to £20.

And this comes after a new 50p coin is set to be released in Lincolnshire and it could fetch thousands if you get your hands on one.
