The Royal Wedding 2011 Silver Proof Coin
The Royal Wedding, a 2011 silver proof coin from Australia.
The Perth Mint announces that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has approved the design for a commemorative Royal Wedding 2011 silver proof dollar coin symbolizing 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. Their marriage took place in London’s historic Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.
The reverse design bears an official image of the happy couple, the beaming smiles on their jubilant faces realistically portrayed in color, an intricately-detailed, sculpture of Westminster Abbey in the background, and the inscriptions ‘Royal Wedding 29.04.2011’ and ‘H.R.H. Prince William of Wales & Miss Catherine Middleton’. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
