I did a little online searching and happened to find a page with a description of the coin.

http://www.24carat.co.uk/1964bermud...wnframe.html

Denomination: Crown
Diameter: 38.61 mms
Weight: 22.62 grams
Alloy: 500
Silver: .3636 troy ounces

The site says it's five shillings, And that it was made before they used a formal decimal system on it's currency, interesting how they would make a coin without any indication of it's value. (That must have been quite confusing. )

But it does indeed have a denomination on it: "ONE BERMUDA CROWN". Everyone using the British monetary system would have known that there were 5 shillings in a crown, just as everyone in America would know there are 10 dimes in a dollar.

Ahhhhhh Yessss.

tobacco bay, my favorite beach in Bermuda. My wife & I honeymooned there almost 7 years ago.

Since it is -3 here in Michigan today, It warmed me up for a second just thinking about it.
