George VI, Coronation Crown 1937 Extremely Fine

In 1937 King George VI was finally crowned and he had his Coronation. It had been a turbulent period with his father having died and his brother abdicating. He went through a lot and worse was to come in the shape of World War II. He did a splendid job considering how much pressure he was under. For his Coronation, the Royal Mint struck a special Crown in silver. Because of the war, this would be King George VI’s only silver crown to be issued. We have offered them in a lower grade recently, but a dealer sold us a nice group in Extremely Fine and that is what we are offering you now. The 1937 King George VI Silver Coronation Crown in Extremely Fine. These coins will all have a lustre and only the smallest amount of actual wear. Nice coins for your date or type collection.

Elizabeth II, 1953 Coronation Crown in Orig Case, Brilliant Unc

Many collectors don’t realize that many of the 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crowns were issued in a black plastic case. It is unusual today to see these coins in those cases; in fact, we would say that the cases are rarer than the crowns. Well as luck would have it, we bought from a coin dealer who is retiring, 100 pieces of the 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crown in Brilliant Uncirculated condition in the original black plastic cases they were issued in. We have seen just normal examples offered for as high as £29.50 in the National Press. So we think our price in the original cases is quite a good price. Supplies are limited and once they are gone, we wouldn’t know where to find any more.

Picture of George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Prooflike cupronickel (boxed)

George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Prooflike cupronickel (boxed)

In 1951, to celebrate the end of austerity after World War II, the British Government held a ‘Festival of Britain’ on the South Bank in London. They also issued a special Crown for King George VI, only the second crown struck for this monarch in this country. The first was struck for his Coronation in 1937 and that was half silver, this second and last crown was struck in Prooflike cupronickel. You have the bare head of the King on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. This is supplied with one of the original card cases that the crown was issued in 1951. The coins are Uncirculated but the card cases have seen a little bit of wear. After all, even a card case was a luxury at that time. Some marketing companies are charging £30.00 plus £4.95 extra for a card case. We think our price is a bit more reasonable.
