Is this better to own than 25p

   
      FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN 1951 CROWN
This beautiful Cupro-Nickel Coin is a 1951 Festival of Britain Crown, Five Shillings. All British coins after 1947 lost their silver content and were made of Cupro-Nickel.

A crown, Five Shillings was worth just 25p in todays money, although the above coin is worth between £2 to £5 in todays money. Features valiant St George on Horse Back slaying the dragon. On the reverse is the head of our our queens Father King George VI
