East Caribbean States, George VI & Princess Elizabeth
Now you don’t see many of the Silver Proof $5.00 Crowns from the East Caribbean States, so perhaps it is worthwhile to add this crown and this country to your collection. It shows King George VI giving a radio broadcast, maybe his Christmas message,with Princess Elizabeth looking over his shoulder. It reads ‘Tenderness to tradition, to you my people’. A choice Proof with brilliant and frosted designs, Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. And sealed in a plastic capsule to preserve the quality of the coin. Today the Royal Mint charges £82 for a silver proof Crown, so we think this is rather good value at this price. But not all that many are available.
