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 Halfpenny, 1953

One of the most difficult denominations to get, in Uncirculated condition, is the Halfpenny. It was a denomination that was regularly used and thus usually comes in circulated condition. We went through one of our vault rooms and found a box of 1953 Coronation Halfpennies in Uncirculated condition taken from the Mint Set of that year; they came out of a plastic folder. Over the past 65 years, they have mellowed a bit, but they have never seen circulation. Years ago we offered the 1953 Penny and that quickly sold out; we expect the same thing to happen on the Coronation halfpenny.

George VI, Proposed Visit Crown, 1949

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened! This was a bit of a problem as the New Zealand Government had gone to the trouble of issuing a Silver Crown! This is the ONLY New Zealand Crown for King George VI. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a Silver Fern on the other. Struck in 500 fine Silver in 1949, it has a mintage of only 200,000 pieces. We can offer the ONLY George VI Silver Crown of New Zealand in Good Extremely Fine condition. It is a very difficult crown to get and this one piece represents a complete type denomination of this Monarch for this country.
