In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, that is 25 years as our Queen. The
Royal Mint issued a special commemorative Crown to honour the event and it was only the
second decimal Crown or 25 pence.
It was issued in cupro-nickel for general usage and Proof Sterling Silver for collectors. The
demand was high as everyone loved the Queen and in those days were not afraid to show it.
Now this crown is 41 years old and is still the best value in Proof Silver British crowns that
you can find.
Today the Royal Mint charges about £80.00 for a silver Proof crownsized coin.
