What Are Crown-Sized Silver Coins?
Silver Crown coins were first struck in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, joining a number of similarly sized silver coins then in circulation across Europe. These large coins, measuring about 38.00 millimetres in diameter, were part of circulating coinage until the nineteenth century.
By the early twentieth century the Crown was transitioning into its modern role as a purely commemorative coin, struck to mark a new monarch's coronation but otherwise rarely. New Crowns were issued to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and later the death of Sir Winston Churchill with issues continuing after Decimal Day, denominated at 25p. Modern collectable Crowns issued by the UK's Royal Mint have a face value of Five Pounds but maintain similar specifications to the older coin.
Other nations also continue to issue Crown-sized coins. These might be issued in the name of British Overseas Territories like Bermuda, the Falkland Islands and Tristan da Cuhna but they are often produced by The Royal Mint or other UK-based private mints for the domestic collectors market. Similar-sized coins are also issued by Commonwealth nations like Barbados, Malta and Tuvalu.
Best Value Silver Crown Specifications
These Crown-sized world coins are struck in .925 sterling silver. That means that these coins contain 92.5% pure silver with the rest of the weight made up by other metals like copper.
Each piece has a minimum total weight of 28.28 grams and contains no less than 0.84 troy ounces of pure silver.
You'll find that most of these coins measure around 38 millimetres in diameter though some may be marginally larger.
The denomination will vary depending on the country of origin. British Overseas Territories utilise the Pound and often denominate their large silver coins at 25p but you may also find $10 and $25 dollar coins in your order.
Since most of the nations that produce Crown-sized coins have the current UK monarch as the head of state you'll likely find a royal portrait on the obverse. These pieces will feature Queen Elizabeth II until a sufficient number of similar Crown coins featuring King Charles III have been struck. Reverses vary widely depending on the issuing country.
