1900 Victorian Jubilee Head Silver Crown Coin, High Grade, Good Detail
Product Code: SMS4875
Reasonable vintage condition. There is a tiny ding in the side - please see pic. The Victoria Old Head obverse design was used on crowns from 1893 until 1900. It was the third major portrait type of Victoria's reign. Called by some the widow head, this is not particularly accurate as Prince Albert had died in 1861, and the old head was not used until 1893. It is also frequently and accurately known as the veiled head. On the obverse there is the older, veiled portrait of Queen Victoria, crowned, facing left. The engraver's initials T.B. appear raised beneath the head. Around the edge are the words: VICTORIA DEI GRA BRITT REGINA FID DEF IND IMP The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's magnificent design of St. George on horseback slaying the dragon, first used on gold sovereigns of George III in 1817. The initials B.P. appear in the exergue to the right of the date. There is no legend on the reverse, apart from the date in the exergue. The edge is inscribed in raised lettering, with six pointed stars as separators: DECUS ET TUTAMEN ANNO REGNI LXIV.
