Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip get commemorative set of coins

ICONINSIDER — An entire set of commemorative coins has been designed to mark Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary.
The duo are set to celebrate the occasion on November 20 and ahead of the date, work has been going on to produce a new set of Royal Mint coins with the couple in mind.
The designs all feature the standard royal crest and crown coin, which says “70 years of marriage” below the design.
On one of the coins, the Queen’s face is joined by that of her husband, while on another of the designs, the duo are seen riding horses together side-by-side.
Around the edge of the coin, it reads: “Wedded love has joined them in happiness.”
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Queen Elizabeth’s horses have won nearly £7 million in prize money over the last 30 years.
The 91-year-old monarch’s equines have won 451 races from 2,815 runs, raking in more than £6.7 million in cash, according to figures from MyRacing.com.
In 2013, she was also named Owner of the Year at the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) Awards.
Rachel Hood, president of the ROA, said at the time: “British racing has been incredibly fortunate to benefit from Her Majesty The Queen’s lifelong support and the remarkable success of Estimate in the Ascot Gold Cup was a very special occasion for the entire sport.
“On behalf of all racehorse owners, the Racehorse Owners Association is honoured and delighted to present the 2013 racehorse owner of the year to the Queen.”
