Picture of Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Wedding Crown) 1972 Cupronickel Unc

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Wedding Crown) 1972 Cupronickel Unc

In 1972 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 25 Pence or Crown for the Queen & Prince Phillip’s 25th Wedding Anniversary. What most people don’t realise is that there were three different types issued. You have the base metal or cupronickel Crown that was issued in Uncirculated theoretically for circulation and the Sterling Silver Proof issued for collectors, but you also have a third type issued. This is the cupronickel Proof which came in the 1972 Proof Set. The type offered here is the cupronickel in uncirculated condition. It is a simple design with EP for Elizabeth and Phillip on one side and the Queen’s portrait on the other side. It is also the first decimal crown or 25 Pence to be struck for the Queen.
