George VI, Crown 1937 Unc
In 1937 for the Coronation of King George VI the Royal Mint issued its own silver crown for King George VI. Shortly after the Coronation World War Two started and they had better uses for the precious metal. In fact, they only ever issued one other crown for George VI and that was in 1951 and it was struck in cupro-nickel. We have a nice group of high-grade, Uncirculated examples of the 1937 Silver Crown. The crown or five shillings was a lot of money and they actually circulated and usually come used.
