The Perth Mint is extremely pleased to announce that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has approved the design for a commemorative Royal Wedding release symbolising Australia’s heartfelt congratulations and warmest wishes for the future happiness of H.R.H. Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
The popular Prince, who is second in the line of succession, met his bride when they were students studying at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Expected to be of intense interest to millions, if not billions, of people worldwide, their marriage takes place in London’s historic Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The design bears an official image of the happy couple, the beaming smiles on their jubilant faces realistically portrayed in colour.
The design also includes an intricately-detailed, sculpture of Westminster Abbey in the background.
Each coin is housed in a grey-coloured presentation case.
The classic case comes in a white box-shipper featuring varnished representations of stylised roses. Silver-foiled lettering completes the luxurious feel.
