Picture of Victoria, Crown (Jubilee Head) 1889 Very Good/Fine

Victoria, Crown (Jubilee Head) 1889 Very Good/Fine

This Sterling Silver Crown of Queen Victoria still had the Jubilee Head of Victoria on it. It was also the largest silver coin issued at the time. Robert Cecil, Marquis of Salisbury was our Prime Minister. Birmingham had been granted status as a city and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds was founded. Preston North End won the FA Cup and Charlie Chaplin was born. This Crown or 5 Shilling piece was a considerable amount of money at the time, it was Sterling Silver and our largest non gold coin. Victoria is on one side with her hair done up in a bun for the Jubilee and the reverse had St. George slaying the dragon. 1889 is not the easiest date to find of the series and all the coins on offer are in Very Good/Fine condition. Which considering they are now 128 years old is quite fantastic.

George VI, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps (Original Box), 1951

George VI 1951, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps. In 1951 this country was going off the rationing that had been in force since World War II. The country rejoiced and children could again have sweets and the family, meat. If they could afford it. The Government held a festival on the South Bank called the Festival of Britain. To honour the King, they issued only the second Crown from his reign. Unlike the Coronation issue which was in silver, this Festival of Britain Crown was struck in cupro-nickel. They are Uncirculated and came in a cardboard box which didn’t survive as well as the coin it was protecting. They also issued two stamps for the Festival. We are offering you the 1951 Festival of Britain Crown in the original box of issue plus both mint unused stamps issued for the Festival. Today they are 66 years old and well worth having…
