2007 25-cent coin - The Queen's 60th Wedding Anniversary

Celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her 60th wedding anniversary Princess Elizabeth was just 13 years old when she met her future husband, Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten. A distant cousin of hers and Prince of Greece and Denmark, the handsome naval officer was often present at the social functions she attended.

Seven years later, they announced their engagement and the wedding was set for November 20, 1947. The couple was married at Westminster Abbey in London and the event proved to be an uplifting celebration for a nation eager to recover after years of war. Like any other young bride during that post-war era, Princess Elizabeth collected clothing coupons for her dress and the celebrations were fairly understated for such an important royal event, but that did not diminish the joy that was felt throughout the monarchy and by the people who watched the ceremony on television.

Now, 60 years later, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary. As one of the most enduring and best-known royal couples in history, they can be confident in the admiration and joy that will be felt throughout the world.
