Only two Crowns were issued during this reign, a 0.500 silver 1937
Coronation Commemorative, and a welcome return for the timeless Pistrucci
St. George and the Dragon, to mark the 1951 Festival of Britain. Some
were actually produced on the Festival site, but there is, unfortunately, no
way of telling if you have one of those. The dies were duplicated from
an 1899 Crown, with the date added by hand. Contrary to popular
opinion, the 1951 Crown is not a Proof, but was prepared using polished
dies, so is often referred to as "Proof-like".
Neither of them were intended to be currency, but they are included for the
sake of completeness.
