2017 $25 70th Anniv. of Royal Wedding 1/4oz Gold ProofItem code: MMP281
On the 20th November 1947, Princess Elizabeth was married to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten at Westminster Abbey. Five years before she was to ascend to the throne, Princess Elizabeth could not possibly hope for the longevity and strength that her new marriage would provide.
Through the death of both of her parents (some 50 years apart!), through her rise to the throne of the United Kingdom and beyond, Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding to Prince Philip has been the epitome of a successful partnership.
In 2017, The Perth Mint celebrates the 70th Anniversary of this grand occasion with this 1/4oz gold proof. Mintage just 750 coins.
