Great Britain Crown  1927 to 1935
Great Britain Crown 1927 to 1935

Nice coin, Yassine, and valuable, too. The coin in our picture comes from York Coins in Red Hook, New York, where it is on sale for $275 US dollars -- a good price for such a nice looking and well preserved specimen.

All the crowns in this series are valuable, cataloging roughly as follows:

worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $180
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $500

Of course these are catalog values, and they are inflated over what one can actually buy or sell the coin for. To understand how to convert from catalog value to actual buy and sell value, use the concepts on our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).

The values in the list above apply to all dates except one. The 1934 coin has a very low mintage, only 932 coins, and for that reason is priced sky high. Here are the values if you are lucky enough, like Yassine, to have one:

worn: $800 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1200
well preserved: $3000
fully uncirculated: $5000

The fact that Yassine specifies 'little or no wear' for his coin, puts it in the $3000 to $5000 range. This makes it suspect. Modern day counterfeiters specialize in rare coins, and Yassine must take steps to ensure he has a genuine piece, not a fake.

If you would like to send us a picture of your coin, please do. We might be able to detect authenticity from good photos.

The normal way of guaranteeing authenticity is to send it to the professional authenticators at PCGS, NGC, ANACS, or ICG. Look up these services on the Internet. Do not use others.

CoinQuest thanks York Coins for use of their coin photo. It's a beauty!
