Why are 60th and 75th Anniversaries the same – Diamond?

75 years is the original Diamond Anniversary (and still is).

The reason it changed, (in Britain at least),  was that it transferred to the 60th Anniversary when Queen Victoria reached 60 years on the throne, and it was celebrated as her Diamond Jubilee.
