Queen Elizabeth II's coronation was held in 1953 at Westminster Abbey a year after the death of her father, George VI. A landmark decision was made to televise Elizabeth's entire coronation; and as she still reigns, it has been the only such event in British history. This copper-nickel crown features the Queen in uniform mounted on horseback for the ceremony Trooping the Colour. The reverse depicts the four quarterings of the Royal Arms and a rose, thistle, shamrock and leek. Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
