Own one of the most interesting UK coins of the 20th century

Struck by The Royal Mint almost 60 years ago, today you can own one of the most interesting UK coins of the 20th century – the New York Exhibition Crown.

New York Exhibition

In order to help boost UK exports, the New York Exhibition was organised in 1960 to demonstrate the best of British manufacturing to the American market.

The Royal Mint was one of the manufacturers who took the trip to America to display their manufacturing capabilities. They chose to strike a very small number of coins at the exhibition so that visitors could see the best of British manufacturing before their own eyes. 

Own yours today in uncirculated condition

Unfortunately there were no distinguishing mintmarks on the coins struck in New York making them difficult to distinguish from the ordinary uncirculated version.

However, as the uncirculated coin was somewhat overlooked at the time in Britain it too has a surprisingly low mintage - less than a fifth of the 1953 Coronation Crown and less than 6% of the 1965 Churchill Crown.

Today you have the opportunity to own the uncirculated New York Exhibition crown with a certificate of authenticity for just £19.99 (+p&p).
