Mintage unknown, long said to be 120 pieces for the Coronation sets of this year. However, contemporary restrikes exist in small numbers, and these have varying types of rims. Nonetheless, this is one of the rarest crowns of the modern era, and exceedingly difficult to locate in a truly choice state of preservation. This is an exceptional specimen.
Estimated Value $12,500 - 15,000.
