Issued by the Royal Mint in 1981 to mark the wedding of the current heir to the throne, HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, this is one of the most important Silver Crowns of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign. Struck in 925/1000 Sterling Silver to the most pristine Proof quality, the 1981 Silver Proof Crown features a double portrait of the Prince and Princess by Philip Nathan, and the second definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by artist and sculptor, Arnold Machin. Extremely difficult to source on today’s secondary market.
