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.
The Royal Mint has just issued a one ounce silver £2 coin for the Royal Coat of Arms. These are
beautiful and the Royal Mint did an excellent job on the design. On the obverse you have H. M.
Queen Elizabeth II brilliant against a hatched background. The reverse has the crowned coat of arms
supported by a crowned lion and a unicorn, again with the hatched background.
Choice Brilliant Uncirculated, it is a coin you will be proud to own.
A plate with the obverse and reverse of the last Halfpenny 1967. The reverse engraved 'Halfpenny the last struck at Tower Hill December 31st 1968'. Uncirculated and most unusual, I just don't what to make of it
In 1983 the Royal Mint issued its first ever non gold pound
coin. It was the first of the new series or Round Pounds
and is one of the most difficult to get, especially in high
grade. Before then the Pound was only known in gold.
We have just bought a nice group of the 1983 Round Pound
in the Official Royal Mint Packaging, known in the trade as
the bubble pack. These coins are suppose to be in
Uncirculated condition, but that is not true. It turns out that
bubble pack coins are specimens or Prooflike coins, a much
better grade than the Uncirculated coins issued for circulation.
The coins come in a full colour package with useful and interesting information
and they are in Specimen Uncirculated condition. A difficult coin to find, especially
so nice and of course supplies are very limited.
