During the short reign of King George IV this Sterling Silver Crown or Five
Shilling piece was only struck for two years 1821 and 1822. You have the portrait
of King George IV on the obverse with St. George and the dragon on the reverse.
There was another design crown issued in 1826 but that is very rare.
This is a rather handsome and we believe underappreciated coin and one that over
the past few years has been harder and harder to get. In fact the few coins that we can
offer you have taken us two years to put together.
The coins on offer are in Very Good condition. They are struck in Sterling
Silver and were only struck for two years.
In the reign of King George IV, he only issued crowns for circulation for two years 1821 and 1822. These are difficult to get as it was such a short mintage. We have a small supply of this Sterling Silver Crown and we have them in Fine condition. Dates are of our choice, but if you order more than one coin, we will try and give you one of each date. A short series and not an easy one to find.
