Platinum Wedding Anniversary

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were married on Thursday 20 November 1947. 70 years on, they are celebrating their platinum wedding anniversary surrounded by four generations of the royal family.
2017 Platinum Wedding Anniversary Silver Proof Coin

To celebrate the Queen and Prince Philip's 70 years of marriage, New Zealand Post has created a stunning 1oz silver proof commemorative coin.


The couple are shown in a photo from their wedding day encapsulated in an illustration replicating the Queen’s platinum engagement ring. The central 3ct diamond is represented by a sparkling Swarovski crystal.

While the Queen and Prince Philip were engaged in 1946, it was not formally announced to the world until the following year – 10 July 1947 – when Elizabeth turned 21.

Prince Philip first gave Princess Elizabeth her engagement ring on 8 July 1947. The platinum band was set with diamonds from a tiara given to his mother, Princess Alice of Greece, by the last Tsar of Russia. Unfortunately, despite Philip’s painstaking attention to detail, the ring was too large for Elizabeth’s finger. It was quickly resized so that she could wear it comfortably when the announcement was made public two days later.

This symbol of their affection is a touching reminder of their personal lives together, beyond the very public roles they have played around the world.
