This information completely ignores the significance of the introduction of the first silver crown in October 1551 in the reign of Edward VI. I have in my collection at least one copy of a crown from practically ever reign since. I have researched the history of silver crown and actually documented this in an 80 page book.
I have them all from 1935 on wards. My mum collected the earlier ones then I continued collecting them over the past 30 years or so. Nice to look through and show my grandchildren
Wow, that’s impressive!
An interesting view over the Brittish history through coins!
