South Africa, 1952 Crown UNC

In 1952 King George VI passed away. South Africa issued as special commemorative crown before he died, their first commemorative. It was for the 300th Anniversary of the founding of South Africa. You have the bust of King George VI on one side and a three masted sailing ship ca 1652 on the other side. It is impossible to buy any of these coins in South Africa. The lower grades were melted when silver was high and the high grade examples have all been exported to collectors overseas. We were lucky enough to buy a small group in this country in uncirculated condition. Remember this is a silver crown, the last silver crown or otherwise of King George VI and the first commemorative crown of South Africa.
