Very nice!

This is an older dormant topic. We have a more recent and active crown topic here...

I guess this is the thread for common/ordinary crown-sized coins, whereas the other thread in the "World Coins and Commemoratives" subforum is only for gems and rarities?

France -- 5 francs, 1868:

Is this the thread for pictures of crowns, too?

Maybe we should have a thread for coins showing crowns, coats of arms, shields, mantles, and other heraldic designs?

So, there are a few definitions for what a "crown" is. Properly, it's a large silver British pre-decimal coin worth 5 shillings, or 1/4 of a pound. However, since decimalization, these have been made with a value of 25 pence (later increased to 5 pounds). And some people apply this definition to any large silver coin (such as silver dollars or silver pesos or silver 5-franc coins). To make things more confusing, some crowns aren't even made of silver, such as the British 1951 crown made of copper-nickel, and numerous copper-nickel coins from 1960s Africa. Still, everyone loves large coins, so I thought I would make a thread for showing them off in.

So... post a large-sized coin, silver or copper-nickel! The only rule here is that it must be large, it must be heavy, and it must be made out of gray metal; use your own best judgment.

I'll start with three of my recent additions:

That recommendation was made last April. In more recent months, it looks like the other crown thread has evolved into a high-end thread, mostly for old/rare coins costing thousands of dollars. I did recently post a Mexican peso there, but I think this thread in the Main Coin Forum is more appropriate for more routine coins (including US dollars). I'd hate to pollute that other thread with typical, everyday crowns.

I guess we should leave it up to the CCF staff -- should we lock this thread and just dump all our random/modern crowns in the other thread?

I guess this new trehad should go in the main coin forum, since it would allow coins from the modern and medieval/ancient period, and
coins from the US, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and the rest of the world?
