Issued to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne in 1952.
The circulated coin option will be chosen from ordinary circulation coins. These are picked at random from a bag of coins. For this reason the condition of the coins will vary. If you are interested in a specific grade, please choose it from the dropdown box. If you are interested in purchasing a bag of coins, make us an offer!
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
The uncirculated version of these coins have not been in circulation. Uncirculated coins may have small scuffs, marks and imperfections due to the minting and handling process. The uncirculated coins we sell are as good as if obtained from the bank at the time. If you are looking for a perfect example, you would be best purchasing an FDC grade coin.
This crown, as with the 1977 crown, had a face value of twenty-five new pence. Because it was primarily a commemorative coin rather than being intended to circulate, it was presumably not considered necessary to include a mark of value in the inscription.
The obverse reads:-
ELIZABETH II D G REG F D
An original design by Arnold Machin, showing the ampulla and anointing spoon that were used in the coronation ceremony. These had been renovated for the coronation of Charles II, are believed to date respectively from the 14th and 12th centuries, and to be the oldest items in the Regalia to have remained in continual use.
There is no inscription on the reverse.
