UK 2017 Platinum Wedding Silver Piedfort £5
Own the Limited Edition UK Platinum Wedding Anniversary Silver Piedfort Coin
This Sterling Silver Proof Piedfort UK £5 Coin has been issued by The Royal Mint to celebrate the longest marriage in royal history - Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness Prince Philip’s Platinum Wedding Anniversary. They are the first British royal couple to reach the incredible milestone of 70 years of marriage.
THREE times more limited
Importantly, this special Piedfort issue has a single coin edition limit of just 4,000 pieces making it more than THREE times more limited than the standard Silver Proof £5 coin, which has a single coin edition limit of 15,000.
TWICE the weight
The 'Piedfort' strike of the coin is twice as thick as the standard issue, which means it has been struck on double-thickness blanks - a tradition that dates back centuries for the production of coins for Monarchs and other dignitaries.
It is a tradition still continued by The Royal Mint today, who strike a small number of Piedfort coins for each commemorative issue.
Struck in 925/1000 Silver to a pristine Proof finish favoured by collectors, the reverse design by John Bergdahl depicts the Queen and Prince Philip on horseback. The obverse features a special dual portrait of the royal couple.
Your coin comes in its Official Royal Mint Presentation Case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Strong sell-out history
Because Piedfort coins have considerably smaller edition limits than standard silver proof coins, they have some of the strongest sell-out records of any British coins. The equivalent Sapphire Jubilee issue sold out in just one week.
And don't forget, this coin has a limited edition presentation of just 4,000 so it won't be available for long.
