Victoria, Jubilee Crown Very Good/Fine, 1889

This Sterling Silver Crown of Queen Victoria still had the Jubilee Head of Victoria on it. It was also the largest silver coin issued at the time. Robert Cecil, Marquis of Salisbury was our Prime Minister. Birmingham had been granted status as a city and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds was founded. Preston North End won the FA Cup and Charlie Chaplin was born. This Crown or 5 Shilling piece was a considerable amount of money at the time, it was Sterling Silver and our largest non gold coin. Victoria is on one side with her hair done up in a bun for the Jubilee and the reverse had St. George slaying the dragon. 1889 is not the easiest date to find of the series and all the coins on offer are in Very Good/Fine condition. Which considering they are now 128 years old is quite fantastic.

Last Five Crown Collection Presentation Pack

Last Five Crown Collection Presentation Pack. In 1981 the Royal Mint issued its last British Crown ever. They are issuing crownsized coins today, but they have a nominal face value of £5 and they are certainly NOT crowns. The last Five Crowns ever were, Churchill Crown 1965, Silver Wedding Crown 1972, Silver Jubilee Crown 1977, Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday Crown and Charles & Diana’s Wedding Crown 1981. Remember the first crownsized coin of five shillings was issued in 1551 by King Edward VI and the last one was in 1981. We have had a fantastic package made to display the last five crowns and it is exclusive to Coincraft. After all, these sets make excellent gifts for family, friends and business associates.
