We think that this 1952 Crown from South Africa is the best value in the series. It is the last crown struck for King George VI, it is their first commemorative crown, it has two dates on it 1652-1952 and best of all it has an old three masted sailing ship on it.
It was issued for the 300th Anniversary of the founding of Cape Town. Today it is almost impossible to find any silver crowns in South Africa; they have all been either exported or melted down for their Silver content. We can offer this one year only type Crown in Choice Uncirculated.
