After decimalisation in 1971, crowns which were traditionally worth 5 Shillings or a quarter of 1 pound, were re-tariffed to their new decimal value of 25 pence.
There are only 4 different versions of this type of coin in existence, each featuring the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
You can now own them all as a complete set, with each commemorating a momentous Royal occasion from the era:
- The 1972 Silver Wedding Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip - The very first of its kind, the reverse design features the letters E and P – the initials of the bridal couple and the anniversary dates.
- The 1977 Silver Jubilee of the Queen - Bearing a striking resemblance to the Coronation Crown, with a rare portrait of the Queen on horseback.
- 1980 - The Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday - The very first time a person other than the reigning monarch had been portrayed on a British coin in their own lifetime.
- 1981 – HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer’s Wedding - The first British coin to portray three people on a coin simultaneously, with the reverse featuring conjoined profiles of Charles and Diana.
