What are gold Crown coins?
The first gold Crown coins were struck during the reign of King Henry VIII. These hammered Five Shilling pieces were minted in both silver and gold through the rest of the Tudor period and into the reign of King Charles II. Silver Crowns continued to be struck for circulation in the ensuing centuries through in fairly limited numbers. In recent decades the Crown has found a role as a commemorative coin, with a face value of Five Pounds. Limited numbers of these modern Crowns are struck in gold as a prestigious collectors piece.
