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.
