During Queen Victoria's reign, there were four types of crowns issued (the 1839 crown was Proof only) but only three types were actually issued for circulation. Here we offer one of them, the Young Head 1839-47 in Fine condition.
In 1839 they struck the first Victorian Crown, but this date was only for the Proof Set and not for general circulation. It wasn’t until 1844 that they struck coins for the public to use. They only made them in 1844, 1845, and 1847 and then they didn’t make another Crown until 1887. This Sterling Silver Crown has the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Because there was a 40-year gap between the last Young Head Crown and the first Jubilee Head Crown, the Young Head Crowns generally come quite well used however, the coins on offer are in Very Fine condition a grade we haven’t been able to offer for a while. Even now the number we have is extremely limited...
