Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Charles & Diana Wedding Crown & Cover) 1981 Pair
The 1981 British crown is known as the Charles & Diana wedding crown. But,more importantly it is the last British crown that the Royal Mint ever struck. The crown (38mm) goes back to the reign of King Edward VI (1551) and this 1981 crown was the last one ever struck. You have Charles and Diana on one side and the Queen on the other side. This crown is struck in Uncirculated cupro-nickel and again was the last crown ever struck. We have a small group of covers from 1981 to commemorate the Queen’s visit to the South Woodham Ferrers on the 21st of May 1981. It also has a guide dog stamp cancelled with a large frank which reads ‘The Royal Visit to the South Woodham Ferrers Chelmsford Essex 21st May 1981’. At this price they would make excellent gifts for stamps collectors, coin collectors and lovers of dogs.
