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.
