It is a rare occurrence that a coin is issued with a duel effigy featured on the obverse, this makes this coin incredibly special! Pobjoy Mint has received exclusive approval from the Queen to feature a duel-effigy of her and HRH Prince Philip together. This is the first time that this portrait has ever been used on a coin, making this issue incredibly exciting!

Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip have had an impressive life together and have actually devoted their lives to the responsibility of monarchy. The couple initially fulfilled at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939 when the Queen was simply 13- years-old, and started exchanging letters prior to ultimately ending up being formally taken part in 1947, following the Queen's 21st birthday. The royal set married later on in the very same year and in November this year will commemorate their Platinum Wedding anniversary. The emperor was crowned just 5 years after their wedding event following the death of her father King George VI, who passed away aged just 56, and although the transition altered their lives forever the couple have actually constantly approached their royal tasks with a sense of humour and affection for each other that, over the years, is testament to their long-lasting love.

The design on the reverse of this coin is adapted from an image of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, arriving at St Paul's Cathedral on June 15, 2006 for a service of thanksgiving held in honour of the Queen's 80th birthday. In order to maintain the exclusivity of this coin Pobjoy Mint is proud to issue 10,000 Cupro Nickel and 2,000 Proof Sterling Silver coins on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.
