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.

Elizabeth II, Wedding Crown, 1972 Cupronickel Proof

In 1972 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 25 Pence or Crown for the Queen & Prince Phillip’s 25th Wedding Anniversary. What most people don’t realise is that there were three different types issued. You have the base metal or cupronickel Crown that was issued in Uncirculated theoretically for circulation and the Sterling Silver Proof issued for collectors, but you also have a third type issued. This is the cupronickel Proof which came in the 1972 Proof Set. The type offered here is the cupronickel proof. It is a simple design with EP for Elizabeth and Phillip on one side and the Queen’s portrait on the other side. It is also the first decimal crown or 25 Pence to be struck for the Queen.

George III, Crown Fair

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 some time 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.
