In 1816 the government made all of the older coins no longer legal tender. They then issued a whole series of new coins, which were of course legal tender. This is the first type of Crown or Five Shillings to be issued for King George III. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were issued only from 1818-1820.
This coin is now proving very hard to get and it has been sometime since we last had enough to offer them to our collectors. Dates of our choice, but we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. Here we present the coin in Fair condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.
In the long reign of Queen Victoria there were three main designs used, we have selected the last two, the Jubilee Head and the Old or Widow Head coinage to offer you. Here we are offering the Old or Widow Head Crown in Fine. We have at least two grades: average circulated and a higher grade.
Dates will be of our choice depending what we have in stock when the order comes in. But as always fair grading and priced to make them attractive.
In 2010 Tristan da Cunha as part of a series, issued a crown noting the Accession of Princess Elizabeth into Queen Elizabeth II. It happened at Tree
Tops and there is a small plaque there commemorating the event.
This gold plated crown shows the young Elizabeth and the date 1952. The obverse has a portrait of our Queen as she looks now and the date 2010. Each
crown is full crownsized, gold plated, struck in Proof and comes in a protective capsule. It remind us of the Queen Victoria medal in 1897, showing both the
Young Head and the Old Head. Although, our Monarch looks far better at her age than Queen Victoria did.
We' ve just had a huge parcel of the 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crown come in. This
was the first crown issued for our ‘new’ Queen and many think it is one of the most handsome
We have not had time to grade the crowns but they are at least Extremely Fine and many are
Uncirculated. So without having to separate them, we are going to offer them at a very special
Remember this is the first crown of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II and are in a very high grade.
We hear several of the marketing companies asking up to £24.95 for these coins in the same
grade. When Coincraft buys right, you buy right. After all they are the Coronation Crowns and
are now 65 years old!
We've had this important crown in stock for sometime but this is the first time that we have found
them and therefore can offer them to you. The Order of the Garter was started by King Edward III in
1340 and even today there is a limit of only 24 living people who can be members at any one time.
It is the most senior British order of chivalry and is personally chosen by the Monarch. New
appointees if any are named on St. George’s Day the 23rd of April. This crown honours the Order of
the Garter and those awarded it.
You have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II in her robes of The Garter on one side and H. M. Queen
Elizabeth II on the other side. The crown is dated 2008 and 2010 is from Tristan da Cunha, is gold
plated, in proof condition and comes in a protective capsule.
Today the Royal Mint charges about £80-£88 for a silver proof
crown. We bought a large group of silver proof crowns, mostly British
Commonwealth, many struck by the Royal Mint. They are in Proof condition
and come in protective capsules. Some even have H. M. Queen
Elizabeth II on the obverse. All are struck in Proof 925 Silver. But, and
here is the but, while the Royal Mint charges about £88.00 today for one
silver proof crown, we will give you three different silver proof crowns for
just £88.00. It is like buying one and getting two more FREE.
They were part of a series mostly issued by and struck by the Royal
Mint so you know that the quality is first class. We know they are good
value at this special price, which holds only until the 50 sets we have are
