Elizabeth II, Silver Jubilee Crown Coloured, 1977
In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, 1952-1977, something that was last achieved by her Grandfather King George V in 1935. The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative crown to honour the event in 1977. We have the cupro-nickel version that was actually issued as money, but it has been artistically coloured to highlight all the details. You have the Queen sitting on her horse, reminiscent of her Coronation Crown of 1953. The crowns have then been painted in colours to highlight the design of the crown. These are first quality examples, not some of the second quality pieces that were offered in the past.
