A commemorative coin issued for the British Exhibition in New York in 1960. The Obverse features a young laurete bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II, with the ledgend around. In the obverse you'll see the the four quarterings of the Royal Arms.
We have just bought 200 Sterling Silver Proof Crowns of the world. The only thing they
have in common is that each crownsized coin has the portrait of H.M. Queen Elizabeth
II. They are Sterling Silver, in Proof condition and come in a protective capsule.
Today the Royal Mint charges £80-£88 for a silver proof crown. We cannot and will not
tell you what you are going to get, but we will sell them at a lot less than the current price
the Royal Mint is charging for similar coins.
We've had this important crown in stock for some time 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.
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.
This Crown or Twenty-Five Pence coin was issued in 1977 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver
Jubilee 1952-1977. It carries on the tradition of the Coronation crown, in that the Queen is on
horseback. They are struck in cupro nickel.
We have had some wonderful strong plastic tubes come in from the States. They hold 20 crownsized
pieces safe and secure. These Crowns are in Uncirculated condition, we have taken them from
original mint sealed bags. A wonderful thing to own or you could break up the roll and give them as
