§ Sir J. Lucas
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has for issuing Crown Pieces this year.
I have authorised the Royal Mint to strike a limited number of Crown Pieces during 1960. These will be issued in the United Kingdom through the banks early in June, and will be placed on sale at the Royal Mint's Stand at the British Exhibition in New York in the same month. The banks 133W have undertaken to issue the available coins to members of the public who apply for them. The Royal Mint will be unable to deal with demands from individual members of the public.
