In 1960 the Royal Mint issued only its second crown for our new Queen, Elizabeth II. But some were issued for the British Pavilion at the New York Exhibition. You can tell these because they are Prooflike rather than matt Uncirculated.
I believe that the 1960 crown in any condition is the most difficult Elizabeth II crown to find. The Prooflike one is much underrated and to be honest most collectors are not even aware of it.
Third larger bust, Reverse: Crowned cruciform shields, interlinked C's in angles. Good Very Fine with a very interesting die break going through 'CAROLVS', it looks like the die was just about to break
In the short reign of King Edward VII, only one crown was ever made, that was in 1902 for his Coronation. They have his bare head on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. They are struck in Sterling Silver and the mintage was just 250,000 Crowns.
This is a very important type coin, because if you want an Edward VII Crown you have to get 1902 one or none at all. We have been building our supplies up again and finally, have enough to offer this Edward VII Crown in Very Good condition.
Edward VIII GB Coronation Patina Crown Set. We all know what the King George VI Coronation Crown looks like, but what if Edward had carried on and been crowned our King? These Patina Retro Patterns show exactly what it would have looked like. The bare head of the King facing left and the supported coat
of arms on the reverse. It is retro dated 1936 and has the complete legend on it. They only made 750 sets of these, in Silver, copper and goldine and we bought most of them. But over the years our supplies have dwindled and we now have only about 30 sets left. All three pieces are crownsized and struck in Proof condition. You get all three pieces for just £89.50. But please remember only about 30 sets left and once they are gone, no doubt the prices of them will rise. It always seems that when we run out, the prices on Ebay and elsewhere go up.
International Numismatic Agency did an Edward VIII for this country, which was a little different than
the normal ones. They redid the bust of King Edward VIII with a rather long neck. They didn’t make
many of them, so they are now in rather heavy demand from collectors.
We bought 83 of them from a dealer who has retired, he bought 100 and forgot about them, only selling
17 of them. They are for Great Britain and are full crownsized struck in Uncirculated cupro-nickel.
If you collect Edward VIII, chances are you do not have this one in your collection. Last chance!
