The ill-fated 1938 Crown was a large coin struck in tiny numbers. It's both of these factors - plus its rich history - that make it prized by collectors today.

The crown denomination was introduced in 1937 to coincide with the Coronation of George VI. It spanned 38.50, was struck from sterling silver and bore a superb, magisterial design: the perfect tribute to a new king.

Production of crowns was intended to continue, and dies were prepared for the 1938 date. However, the coin's hefty size proved impractical for circulation - and the crown was poorly received by the general public. Minting was eventually halted in 1938, leaving the total mintage of 1938-dated coins a meagre 101,600.

The 1938 Crown is an essential component to any predecimal collection! This critical coin is well within your reach in Fine to Very Fine - don't miss your chance! Click 'add to cart' now.
