Great Britain Crown and Half Crown  1691 to 1693
Great Britain Crown and Half Crown 1691 to 1693

As Charles points out, there are other British coins with busts of William and Mary (Gulielmus et Maria). The obverse side with the portraits are all similar, but the reverse sides differ. This page applies to crowns and half crown like the one shown in our picture. For a half crown with the alternate reverse (dated 1689 or 1690), click to this CoinQuest page.

The picture on this page coin comes from AMR Coins, Dealers in Quality English Coins, in Leeds, the UK. It is a beautiful piece, with outstanding eye appeal. Most of these old crowns are not preserved nearly as well as this one, and CoinQuest thanks AMR Coins for use of their coin photo. This coin is on sale for 4200 pounds, about $6700 US dollars, a good price for such a magnificent coin.

Requester description: 1691 GVLIELMVS ET MARIA DEI GRATIA REGINA MAG BR REX I have a coin which is very similar to this coin: http://coinquest.com/cgi-bin/cq/coins?main_coin=1964 on one side however has a bust of William and Mary on the other side (http://www.brucelorich.com/graphics/lg1693g.jpg) I cannot seem to find the exact coin anywhere online and I am curious of its history and what it may be worth? It is not in the best of conditions as it has a small hole along the rim where it may have been worn as a necklace yet the details of the coin are still visible. Many thanks
