Not only were just two Crowns issued during George VI’s 16 year reign, but these two coins are also extremely significant in the history of British coinage.
Two Significant Crown Issues
After the abdication of King Edward VIII, a new portrait was engraved for George VI in time to strike the 1937 Silver Crown for his coronation. What makes this coin so important for numismatic collectors is that it was the last ever coronation Crown struck in silver by The Royal Mint.
The second crown issued during the reign of George VI was struck in 1951 to mark The Festival of Britain. This specially issued coin was the first Crown ever struck in cupro-nickel and the first Crown issued to commemorate a non-royal event.
