Elizabeth II, New York Commemorative Crown 1960 Prooflike

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 some time 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.

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.

1946 Threepence in Brass (Scarce) Circulated_obv

George VI, Threepence in Brass (Scarce) 1946 Circulated

The Brass Threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued for circulation in 1967. What we consider to be the Key date of the series is the King George VI 1946 issue. It has always been difficult to find in this country because, although struck by the Royal Mint, the coins were sent overseas for use in the Caribbean. We have recently purchased a nice group of these coins which grade in Fine condition.
