Be the proud owner of one of the most popular UK coins of the last century

2018 marks the 65th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation, and today you can own the very coin that was issued in 1953 to celebrate this event.

Unusually for a United Kingdom issue the coin features the Queen riding on horseback. The edge inscription reads 'Faith and Truth I will Bear Unto You' which is taken from the Coronation Oath. In the years that have passed since Her Majesty’s coronation this has become one of the United Kingdom's most iconic coins, and has been the starting point for countless great collections.

The First QEII Commemorative Coin

The 1953 Crown was also the first United Kingdom commemorative coin issued during Queen Elizabeth II's reign, making it especially sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.  That's why we're particualrly pleased to be able to make our small stocks available now, in this special Coronation anniversary year.

A Great Tradition

Collecting British crowns has always been a fulfilling pursuit, but I wonder if the public of 1953 realised just how important this coin was to become.

By securing your coin today you can join in with this great collecting tradition, and own one of the most iconic coins of the 20th century.

Complete with Certificate of Authenticity.
