1977 "Silver Jubilee Crown" Silver Proof, Boxed and Certificate FDC


1977 "Silver Jubilee Crown" Silver Proof, Boxed FDC. The coin in this case is one of a number of silver crown pieces issued in proof form in commemoration of The Queen's silver Jubilee. Each of the crowns is struck in sterling silver and has a diameter of 38.61 mm and a weight of 28.276 grammes. The obverse of the United Kingdom crown is an equestrian portrait of The Queen by Arnold Machin. The Queen is shown in her uniform as Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards, one of the uniforms worn by Her Majesty at the ceremony of Trooping the Colour. For the numismatist the design will recall the Coronation crown of 1953 and crowns of Edward VI, James I and Charles I with their handsome and often lively portraits of the Monarch on horseback. The reverse which is also by Arnold Machin shows, within a floral garland, the ampoule and anointing spoon that were used in the coronation ceremony. Renovated for the coronation of Charles II, these are believed to date respectively from the 14th and 12th centuries and are probably the oldest items in the Regalia to have in continual use. GRADE: Silver Proof Boxed and Certificate as Issued by the Royal mint in Choice FDC.
