This Crown was issued in 2010 and it honoured the famous adventurer T. E. Lawrence known as Lawrence of Arabia. They even made a film about him and it won lots of Academy Awards. The gold-plated crown shows Lawrence with a camel behind him. The obverse has a portrait H. M. Queen Elizabeth II. It was issued by Tristan da Cunha and the British Flag is coloured in red, white, and blue. We only managed to get 100 of these and Lawrence is so popular that they might not last long on our website.

Tristan da Cunha, Crown 2014 (Tristão da Cunha & Ship) Silver Plated Proof

The Portuguese explorer Tristão da Cunha was born in 1460 and died in 1540. At one time he was King Manuel I’s ambassador to the Vatican under Pope Leo X. But he is best known for his antics in the Middle East and India. When in his wanderings he found a group of islands in the South Atlantic, although the weather was too rough to get off his ship, he claimed them and named one after himself. Now that island Tristan da Cunha has issued a crown to honour their discoverer. It is diamond-shaped and has H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and Tristão on the other side with a sailing ship and wheel. This is heavily silver plated and struck in Proof condition. It also comes in a diamond-shaped protective capsule. If you name an island after yourself, why not have a coin made for you?
