In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, and to mark the occasion, the Royal Mint produced this commemorative crown. The obverse is reminiscent of the 1953 Coronation crown, with an equestrian portrait of the Queen in Guards uniform. The reverse is unusual in having no inscription of any kind, let alone the value of the coin. The eagle-shaped vessel known as the Ampulla and the ceremonial spoon used to anoint the sovereign at the coronation appear in a central circle, surmounted by the Crown of St Edward and the heraldic flowers of the United Kingdom.
