Great Britain Crown  1887 to 1900
Great Britain Crown 1887 to 1900

These grand old coins were minted from 1887 to 1900 with Queen Victoria on the front and St. George the dragonslayer on the back. In 1893 the portrait of the queen changed, but the dragonslayer stayed the same. These coins contain 0.841 troy ounces of silver, so they carry a value at least 0.841 times the current price of silver. Look it up at

Value will be strongly dependent on condition. The coin in both our pictures are in nice numismatic (coin collecting) shape, with only a little wear and no significant problems like stains, spots, scratches, polishings or cleanings.
