from
£765.00
A collectable silver Crown of King George the Third, dated 1818. 1818 was the 58th year of George III’s reign and the regnal year appears on the edge in raised lettering in Roman numerals: ‘LVIII’. The obverse features the large laureate bust of the King, facing right with the date and engravers name below: ‘PISTRUCCI’. The reverse shows the famous St George on horse back slaying a dragon underfoot, all within a stylised garter buckle with the legend, translated, reading ‘Shame who thinks evil of it’. Again, the name of the engraver - Benedetto Pistrucci - appears below the central design.. These George III silver Crowns have a low mintage of just over 155k. They are becoming scarce in high grades and are, in our opinion, under valued at present.
