Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (D-Day) 1994 Silver Proof

The Royal Mint issued a Special commemorative 50 Pence in 1994 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. This was, of course, the day that we invaded Europe and the start of the long battle to defeat the Germans which set Europe Free. The 50 Pence at that time was a much larger coin and it showed the design off to its fullest. You have a squadron of planes and gliders attacking with ships below getting ready to off load the soldiers. The Mint also made a Special Collectors edition. Struck in Proof Sterling Silver they are now no longer made, the 50p has been replaced by a much smaller coin. Supplies are limited and each coin comes in a protective capsule as issued by the Mint.

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Charles & Diana Crown) 1981 Silver Proof FDC in case

On 29 July 1981, Prince Charles (now King Charles III) was married to Lady Diana Spencer at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, and these large Sterling Silver ‘Crowns’ were issued by the Royal Mint to mark the event. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996 but these coins were the first official coin to carry the portrait of our new King and the Royal Mint is now charging £90 for the new ‘Crowns’ of Charles III. The crown comes in an Official Royal Mint case with a certificate and is protected in a capsule so you can view both sides without getting your fingerprints on it.

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.
