Elizabeth II, £5 Silver Crownsized Proofs - The Queen & Prince Philip, 1997

Prince Philip and the Queen got married in 1947 and he has been a fantastic consort for Her Majesty. The Queen is on every coin, but Prince Philip has only been on very few. The first coin that featured Prince Philip was the 25 Pence piece or Crown issued in 1972 for the Wedding Anniversary. There was no portrait but just two initials ‘E & P’ under a crown. In 1997 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £5 piece for the Golden Wedding of the Queen and Prince Philip and this time his portrait did appear on the coin. You have the Queen wearing her crown and Prince Philip standing beside her. The other side has their two coats of arms under a crown with an anchor below. The first coin to show two conjoined busts was in the reign of William & Mary in 1689. We have both of these important crownsized pieces, one a crown or five shillings and the other £5 but both in Proof Sterling Silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80-£100 for a Silver Proof crownsized coin. Both are not easy to find and in Choice Proof condition and struck in Sterling Silver, the finest silver that was used for coins. Supplies are limited and it is a great way to honour H.R.H Prince Philip and of course, H.M. The Queen, after all, how many couples have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary?

Elizabeth II, Bubble Pack Crown Charles & Diana, 1981

In 1981 when Charles and Diana got married, the Royal Mint was experimenting with a new finish for their coins. They call them Brilliant Uncirculated but experienced numismatists know that they are better so they call them what they are, specimens. They are Prooflike, the surfaces are clear of any imperfections and they are just better condition than any coin you will find in your change. These Crowns come in a full colour bubble pack showing the engaged couple with Diana in her famous blue dress. Inside they outline the history of the House of Windsor and show St. Pauls. It has been sometime since we last had any of these bubble pack crowns and with the current interest in decimal coins these should be quite popular.

Elizabeth II, Churchill Crown Uncirculated, 1965

Elizabeth II, Coranation Crown Choice BU, 1953

This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Choice Uncirculated.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown Extremely Fine, 1953

It is now 65 years since Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. I have been privileged to visit Tree Tops where they have a plaque commemorating the place that Elizabeth first became Queen. This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Extremely Fine.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown, 1953 in Orig Case

Many collectors don’t realize that many of the 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crowns were issued in a black plastic case. It is unusual today to see these coins in those cases; in fact we would say that the cases are rarer than the crowns. Well as luck would have it, we bought from a coin dealer who is retiring, 100 pieces of the 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crown in Brilliant Uncirculated condition in the original black plastic cases they were issued in. We have seen just normal examples offered for as high as £29.50 in the National Press. So I think that our price in the original cases is quite a good price. Supplies are limited and once they are gone, we wouldn’t know where to find any more.
