A collectable silver Crown of Queen Victoria, dated 1893. The obverse features the Old Head portrait of Victoria, coroneted and wearing a necklace and star, facing left. ’T.B.’ appears below for the engraver, Thomas Brock. The reverse shows the famous Saint George on horseback with a sword in hand, slaying a dragon under foot. The obverse Latin legend translates to ‘Victoria by the Grace of God, Queen of the Britains, Defender of the Faith, Empress of India’. The edge shows raised lettering with the regnal year: ‘LVII’. This example is one of two die combinations, this one being ‘2A’ where the ’T’ in Victoria points to a space (Davies no. 506). A scarcer die combination from a harder to find year. Spink 3937.
