About this deal

All images are the property of the British Red Cross Museum and Archives (unless otherwise indicated), and cannot be used without permission. When I lived in Canada back in 1962 I got 10 one dollar coins from the bank, and managed to spend most of them without difficulty, although they tended to be put on one side in the till so I doubt that they went further! Four hundred years later, on the occasion of the Festival of Britain, the Royal Mint has issued a Crown piece, bearing on its edge the Latin inscription MDCCCLI CIVIUM INDUSTRIA FLORET CIVITAS MCMLI -- 1851 By the industry of its people the State flourishes 1951.

Thanks for looking, and please take a glance at our other antique, vintage and collectable items https://www. These Crowns were produced to commemorate the Festival of Britain which took place on the South Bank of the River Thames in London opening on the 4th May 1951 for five months which was literally 100 years after the Great Exhibition in London'€™s Hyde Park from May to October 1851.

Maybe the level of attention given to the topic was minimal but perhaps they believe not much more is needed. I know that there's a reflection-readability self-test, but I believe the same dies on the VIP and proof strikes were used for the proof-like strikes. More info on this can be found in the excellent reference work British Silver Coins from 1816, by Peter Davis.This particular coin is beautifully packaged in its own small box, an original dark red Royal Mint Festival of Britain 1951.
