In 1960 the Royal Mint issued a Crown to honour the New York World’s Fair. We have always thought that some of the coins were actually struck in New York but we have been told that this is not the case and they were all were struck in this country.
What we do know is that a very small number of the 1960 crowns were struck in Prooflike Uncirculated condition, rather than in the normal matt Uncirculated. These Prooflike Crowns are difficult to get and it has taken us sometime to put this little group together.
On the obverse you have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II and on the reverse you have four shields of arms. According to Krause less than 7% of the coins struck were in Prooflike Uncirculated condition.
Get them while our small supply lasts, we don’t know anyone who has any quantity of these available.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown, 1953 Unc

It is now 65 years since Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. I have been privileged to visit Tree Tops where they have a plaque commemorating the place that Elizabeth first became Queen. This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Uncirculated.
