Golden Jubilee Crown Cover 4 stamps of the Bahamas, Commonwealth Games 50p from the Falkland Islands, the Queen being greeted by a Maori woman and child. These Crown Covers were issued in 2002, some 16 years ago. They honoured H. M. Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee or 50th anniversary of coming to the throne. This year is also the 50th anniversary of Coincraft being in London, but I cannot see anyone making a crown for that. Each cover features 4 stamps, a full colour cover and a Prooflike Crown to honour this momentous event. Supplies are limited and once they are gone, they are gone…
In 2002 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 50th or Golden Jubilee as our Queen. The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 to honour the event. In many ways it is similar to the Coronation Crown of 1953, as the Queen is riding her horse. The obverse is the Queen with her crown and a most striking portrait it is. We recently came across a group of these, which we were able to buy at a very special price. They are in their capsules and are Uncirculated, these are now almost 20 years old.
In 2002 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5.00 to honour the 50th anniversary of Elizabeth becoming Queen Elizabeth II. On one side you have the Queen on horseback and on the other you have a rather stunning portrait of the Queen in a very pensive pose. We have a small number of this handsome Silver Proof £5 complete in capsule. They are beautiful and do justice to our Monarch who has dedicated so much of her life to her country and her people. Don’t miss out, this is a handsome coin.
This is one of Mercury huge Crown Covers issued in 2002 for Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee. This one contains two $2 stamps from Grenada. The Sierra Leone Dollar depicts a youthful Queen with a also young Prince Charles and Princess Anne. This crown must be quite scarce as I have never seen it offered before. It is Brilliant Uncirculated and in this large size First Day Cover it looks just great.
