HC Deb 15 December 1976 vol 922 cc753-4W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is now in a position to give further information about the proposed crown piece to be struck to commemorate the Queen's Silver Jubilee.

Mr. Denzil Davies

Yes. Her Majesty has today made a Proclamation under the Coinage Act, 1971, giving details of this coin.

As previously announced it is proposed to strike two versions, one in cupronickel and one in sterling silver. The cupro-nickel version will be of normal coinage standard, and will be available from banks at face value. The silver version will be struck to proof standard and will be available by mail order direct from the Royal Mint. The price of the silver proof and the date of issues of both versions will be announced later.
