While I would have preferred that the Royal Mint had faithfully re-created the design of Queen Anne's silver Crown coinage for this anniversary, but since I admire Mark Richard's work, I had second look at the coin and placed an order for the silver proof example. I was also attracted by the low quantity numbers as there hasn't been such a low mintage for a British silver crown in four figures since 1936 - this may end up as being a key coin to have in modern British Crown collections - time will tell!
Received my Silver Proof coin today. Delighted the coin is superb and The Royal Mint has described it very accurately. I urge collectors to buy immediately to avoid disappointment.
Perhaps the best commemorative coin designs of recent times.
