Golden Jubilee Crown Cover Sierra Leone/Grenada
Sierra Leone was a British colony from 1808 until 1961. In 2002 when H.M. Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Golden Jubilee they issued a handsome Crown or $1.00 to honour the event. It is housed in a large cover (25x18cms). The crown shows the Queen seated with Prince Philip standing at her side and on the reverse has a large crest with a shield between two lions and palm trees either side. The cover has a full colour photograph of the Queen wearing a tiara and insignia. There are also two $2 stamps issued by Grenada featuring scenes from the Queen’s life. This crown is struck in Cupro-Nickel and is quite scarce (KM# 285).
