Pricing Silver Crown

Note -

The prices in the above graph were derived by looking at Seaby and Spink  catalogue pricing over the years since 1947. Using Fine grade as the  basis was necessary as in the early years Seaby sold off of their book  catalogue prices and only offered pricing for Fine graded coins. Also  prior to 2001 there was no pricing for individual years. Prior to that  time one only saw prices for groups of coins such as halfcrowns with the sun mintmark. World events such as coming off of the gold standard in 1971 you might think would have influenced the relative price for gold  and silver coinage over the years. The rarity of these coins on the  other hand has not changed significantly. Looking at catalogues over the years since 1947 it is possible to average out the relative price for  each coin type and use these relative prices to then work out what  today’s prices should look like for the commonest variety of each denomination.

As a rough rule of thumb today, a truely VF grade coin today is around 2 1/2 to 3 times these prices.
