70 years ago this year, the young Princess Elizabeth and Duke of Edinburgh were married at Westminster Abbey. From the expert hands at the Perth Mint and Australia Post comes this sensational collaboration, celebrating the longest British/English royal union in fittingly magisterial style.
Features an Australian legal tender $1 coin
Struck by the Perth Mint, the Australian legal tender issue featured in this presentation bears a tremendous reverse design that is richly symbolic. Two shields appear side by side, taken from the Royal Coat of Arms and that of His Royal Highness Prince Philip respectively. The years '1947-2017' are inscribed below, an instant reminder of the incredible enduring love and loyalty shared by the royal couple. The simple elegance of this 30.60mm $1 coin is made all the more apparent by a strictly Uncirculated strike.
Prestigious presentation fit for a Queen
Australia Post's excellent official $2.95 stamp is the perfect partner to the Perth Mint's $1 Unc. Bearing a recent colour photograph of the Queen and Prince Consort, it is juxtaposed beautifully against the set's splendid presentation card, which bears an original black-and-white photograph from the couple's 1947 wedding. Creating a poignant 'now and then' effect, the resulting presentation is at once moving and elegant, relevant and timeless. The card has also been stamped with the date of the royal anniversary, making it the perfect all-in-one memento.
Beautifully presented, this sensational PNC would make a terrific gift - especially given its affordability at under $20! With just 7,500 issued worldwide, act now to avoid missing out.
