1oz SILVER PROOF 1977 U.K SILVER JUBILEE + COA & BOXED
Housed in a capsule in Royal Mint Box with certificate
The 1977 Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Silver Proof Crown, a one year only issue and Her Majesty’s first ever Jubilee Crown - is struck in solid sterling silver and to Proof quality - the highest possible quality. The design was also a break from recent issues in that it did not feature a regular portrait of the Queen, but instead the ‘Equestrian Portrait’ which shows Her Majesty on horseback and celebrates the Monarch's relationship with the noblest of animals. This type of portrait is actually one of the oldest in the crown series and dates back to the very first silver crown coin of 1551. The use of the ‘Equestrian Portrait’ of Her Majesty on this coin makes it a special issue. However, this coin is also significant because the reverse side carries no wording, numbers or dates whatsoever, and this is the first time in history this happened on a British crown. Given that it has so many important features and that the Diamond Jubilee is just around the corner, it is certain to be subject to considerable demand from collectors.
