The Coin

Our Ultra-High Relief coins are always incredibly desirable and usually sell out! The extra level of relief brings the portraits to life by allowing an unprecedented level of detail. It is also very difficult to strike a coin with this level of relief which collectors with a technical knowledge of coin production will surely appreciate!

The design on this coin features an Ultra-High relief dual effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth alongside her husband HRH Prince Philip, designed by and exclusive to Pobjoy Mint. The reverse has also been given a dished effect to emphasize the double portrait further. The Obverse repeats this beautiful portrait with a standard level of relief. The issue limit of this coin is set at 650 to further improve exclusivity and collectability of this 999. Proof Fine Silver coin. 1oz Piedfort Coin (2oz total weight). The coin has been produced on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.

Behind the Coin

Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip have had an astonishing life together and have dedicated their lives to the duty of monarchy. The couple first met at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939 when the Queen was just 13 years old, and began exchanging letters before eventually becoming formally engaged in 1947, following the Queen’s 21st birthday. The royal pair married later in the same year and in November this year will celebrate their Platinum Wedding anniversary. The monarch was crowned just five years after their wedding following the death of her father King George VI, who died aged only 56, and although the transition changed their lives forever the couple have always approached their royal duties with a sense of humor and affection for each other that, over the decades, is testament to their enduring love.
