Gold and Rhodium plated 1953 Coronation Crown
Secure the original 1953 Coronation Crown plated in Gold and Rhodium Platinum
To celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, a special commemorative crown was issued.
The obverse portrait of the crown was designed by sculptor Gilbert Ledward and shows Her Majesty mounted on a horse and dressed in her uniform as Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards.
The image of a monarch on horseback has not been seen since the James I Crown in 1603, which makes this coin and its design highly prized and instantly recognisable amongst collectors.
However the 1953 crown we are offering is not just the ordinary cupronickel version, it has been richly plated in 24 Carat Gold. What’s more, the reverse design has been skilfully highlighted with Rhodium-Platinum which really brings the image to life in a striking way.
Your coin will arrive in a Deluxe Presentation Case with an accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
