The best Platinum Jubilee merchandise – and where to buy it

On the occasion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, there is a lot of merchandise you can buy…

The Queens Platinum Anniversary is undoubtedly a time of joy and celebration.

But fans of the royal family also know that this year’s celebration of Her Majesty’s 70th reign is a historic event.

That’s why it makes a lot of sense to buy a piece of Platinum Jubilee merchandise – be it a decorative cookie jar or a beautiful piece of commemorative porcelain.

It can be a memento, or something that is passed down from generation to generation, such as a coin. Or something fun, or even edible, on the occasion of the four-day party weekend.

There are plenty of Platinum Jubilee themed items to choose from including mugs, coins, china, dish towels, prints, corgi themed decorations and even a (sold out) Barbie doll from The Queen.

Here we round up some of the best Platinum Jubilee merchandise you can still buy and where to buy.

The Royal Mint’s Platinum Jubilee £5 coin

Yep, toy brand Mattel does indeed have a special barbie doll of the queen in honor of the platinum jubilee.

The doll had a younger-looking, gray-haired Elizabeth wearing a long white dress and blue sash, along with a bejeweled tiara, dangling earrings and a bold necklace.

Unfortunately, the doll sold out in under three seconds when it first went on sale on April 20. At the time, John Lewis listed the doll for £94.99, but Mattel’s site listed the original price at $75 (£60).

It is not yet known whether there will be more Barbie shares. But if so… just know it will sell out fast.
