George VI, Proposed Visit Crown, 1949

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened! This was a bit of a problem as the New Zealand Government had gone to the trouble of issuing a Silver Crown! This is the ONLY New Zealand Crown for King George VI. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a Silver Fern on the other. Struck in 500 fine Silver in 1949, it has a mintage of only 200,000 pieces. We can offer the ONLY George VI Silver Crown of New Zealand in Good Extremely Fine condition. It is a very difficult crown to get and this one piece represents a complete type denomination of this Monarch for this country.

Elizabeth II, Scarce 1960 Crown EF

In 1960 the Royal Mint issued a Special Crown for the British Exhibition in New York. It is without doubt, the most difficult of the Queen Elizabeth II Crowns to obtain. The mintage figure is just over a million coins, but they almost never turn up, where are they all? On the obverse is the Queen, the first time her portrait had been on a crown and on the reverse are four shields. Here we offer this coin in Extremely Fine.
