Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown Choice Unc, 1953
It is hard to believe that this crown was issued 67 years ago, but it was, for the Coronation of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. It was her first ever Crown and we believe her only real Crown. It was collected yes of course everyone wanted some of the new money, but they were also actually used as money and got circulated. There were NO silver, gold, piedfort or other strikes made of these coins, there were only made in honest, down to earth cupro-nickel.
I have been buying them up for years, because I think they are fantastic and underappreciated. It is the time to share my hoard of the First Ever Crown of Queen Elizabeth II with you. They were made in a time when the only coins struck at the mints were coins to be used by the people that day. These Crowns are about as good as you will find anywhere
