Set of 3 60th Anniversary End of WWII Silver Crowns from Ascencion, St Helena & Falklands
Here are three different silver proof crowns issued in 2005 for the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. Each coin has H.M. the Queen on them, so they were official sanctioned by the Palace. It is just that none of them are listed in the catalogues as yet. They were part of the large lot of silver proof crowns that we recently purchased. Only 29 pieces of each in the hoard, so they must be rare. They have red, white and blue banners on the reverse depicting people who were happy that the War was over. You have the Falkland Islands showing a family waving flags, St. Helena with a child hugging her returning serviceman father and Ascension Islands with children dancing in a circle. As there are only 29 pieces of each we are only going to offer the collection as a collection of three different silver proof crowns. Today the Royal Mint charges in excess of £80 each for similar crowns, so our price of £115 for the set of three is less than half the price that you might expect to pay. But please remember only 29 sets available.
