This special commemorative release celebrates the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.
On 27 November 2017, the Office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House made the official announcement of the engagement: “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle.”
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II used her 2017 Christmas message to officially welcome Ms Markle into the family following the announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry one month earlier. On 15 December 2017 the announcement was made that the marriage of Prince Harry and Ms Markle would take place on 19 May 2018 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
This stunning coin features the inscriptions ‘H.R.H. PRINCE HENRY OF WALES & MS MEGHAN MARKLE’ bordered by filigree artistry and ‘19 MAY 2018’. Above the inscriptions are wedding bells with a sprig of myrtle, which has been a part of every royal bride’s bouquet since Queen Victoria married Prince Albert. The white flower has been a symbol of good fortune since ancient times. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of the coin depicts the Ian Rank- Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and monetary denomination.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/4oz of 99.99% pure gold, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. Only 750 of the 2018 Royal Wedding 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin will be released worldwide!
The coin is presented in a presentation box with a timber lid within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
