George V, Rocking Horse Commemorative Crown, 1935 Unc

We recently purchased a small group of the 1935 George V Silver Jubilee Crowns. This was the first-ever commemorative crown issued and it was for the King’s 25th anniversary or Silver Jubilee on the throne. You have the bust of the King on one side and a most unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. In fact, our owner was the first person to call it ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’ as that was what it looked like. This crown was only struck in 1935 for King George V’s Diamond Jubilee. Although there was the Great Depression on, the public loved this Crown and the Royal Mint had to strike more of them than anticipated. Now over 80 years later it is still highly collected, but it is one of the best value Crowns around. We can offer you this 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown struck in Silver and in Uncirculated condition.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Very Fine

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17-year-old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. We can offer the Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Florins of Queen Victoria issued 1887-1892 in two different grades. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. On one side you have the Jubilee Head bust of the Queen with a rather silly small-sized crown on her head. The other side has four coats of arms. All of these Jubilee Head Florins are struck in Sterling Silver and they are, despite what Victoria thought, rather attractive. We can offer them here in Very Fine, they are nice collectable examples.

ICB issued a beautiful Edward VIII collection, full crownsized in eight different metals with a milled edge. We bought the entire mintage, except for one set that is being put into auction.

The metals they are struck in are: Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold Plated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver. A youthful portrait of the uncrowned King is on one side and a new version of St. George slaying the dragon is on the other side. Only 100 collections made with the milled edge, that is all, forever.

George IV, Crown Very Good

During the short reign of King George IV this Sterling Silver Crown or Five Shilling piece was only struck for two years 1821 and 1822. You have the portrait of King George IV on the obverse with St. George and the dragon on the reverse. There was another design crown issued in 1826 but that is very rare. This is a rather handsome and we believe underappreciated coin and one that over the past few years has been harder and harder to get. In fact the few coins that we can offer you have taken us two years to put together. The coins on offer are in Very Good condition. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were only struck for two years.
