George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Unc

In 1937 they issued a silver crown for the Coronation of King George VI. No other crowns were issued during his reign as World War II was happening. Finally in 1951 to celebrate The Festival of Britain the Royal Mint issued a second George VI crown. But this time it was in cupro-nickel rather than silver. The Mint had stopped using silver in our coinage by that time. So this 1951 cupro-nickel is the only cupro-nickel crown ever issued for King George VI. It is available in Extremely Fine, Uncirculated and Prooflike Uncirculated in the original card case of issue.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown 1953 Unc

It is now 65 years since Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. I have been privileged to visit Tree Tops where they have a plaque commemorating the place that Elizabeth first became Queen. This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Uncirculated.
