In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. The Royal Mint, as they did with her Grandfather, George V, issued a special silver commemorative crown or five-shilling piece. It shows the Queen on horseback and was very popular with the public at the time. In fact, it was probably was the height of public celebrations. The 1977 Silver Jubilee Crown in Proof Sterling Silver is one of the most popular of her reign and the best value of her entire series. Today the Mint seems to be issuing a crownsized coin almost every day. Here we offer you Proof Sterling Silver examples of the 1977 Silver Jubilee Crown with the Official Royal Mint case. Remember these silver proof crowns are now over 40 years old and are crown coins not the £5 pieces issued today. We think these silver proof crowns are real coins and not some fantasy £5 piece that has never actually been used.
Fantastic Collection of the last 5 Crowns Ever In 1981 the Royal Mint issued its last British Crown ever. They are issuing crown-sized coins today, but they have a nominal face value of £5 and they are certainly NOT crowns. The last Five Crowns ever were, Churchill Crown 1965, Silver Wedding Crown 1972, Silver Jubilee Crown 1977, Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday Crown and Charles & Diana’s Wedding Crown 1981. Remember the first crown-sized coin of five shillings was issued in 1551 by King Edward VI and the last one was in 1981. We have had a fantastic package made to display the last five crowns and it is exclusive to Coincraft. These sets make excellent gifts for family, friends and business associates. One marketing company is selling the 1977 Crown on its own for £9.95, so our price of just £24.95 for all five crowns is very reasonable.
In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977 and the whole world went wild. For the first time many of her overseas countries issued crowns to celebrate the event. Today the coins would be the same size but have a face value of £2-£5 and sell for more. We have just found two rolls of the Jersey 1977 Silver Jubilee Crown in Uncirculated cupronickel. They are 42 years old and struck by the Royal Mint.
In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. She visited Lundy and a souvenir sheet was issued to honour that event. We have been offering that souvenir sheet with the two coin-tokens of a Puffin and a Half Puffin based on the first Lundy coin-tokens issued in 1929. At that time, the Government took umbrage, and the man who made them had to go to court. Many of our collectors want the coin-tokens, but do not want the souvenir sheet. They are struck in copper and are in brilliant Proof condition. Well worth adding to your collection, after all, how many Lundy issues have there been?
