George IV, Crown Very Good

During the short reign of King George IV only three crowns were issued 1821, 1822 and 1826. As the 1826 can cost thousands, we will leave that out, for this issue… They are Five Shillings or a real Crown, struck in Sterling Silver for only those two years. You have the King with laurel wreath on one side and St. George and the dragon on the other side. I think this is one of the most underappreciated crowns of the modern series. After all they only struck them for two years and they are within two years of being 200 years old. Real antiques and rather beautiful coins especially in the higher grades, which by the way, can be very expensive. The 1822 in Uncirculated can cost you more than £2,000. We offer them by type, but if you order twos, I promise you one of each date. We have them in two different grades, Fine, Very Good.

1960 New York World Fair Crown Prooflike_Obv

Elizabeth II, Crown (British Exhibition in New York) 1960 Prooflike

In 1960 the Royal Mint issued a Crown for the British Exhibition in New York. 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 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.
