HC Deb 16 February 1977 vol 926 c271W
Mr. Cant

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is now in a position to give further information about the issue of the cupro-nickel and silver crown pieces to be struck to commemorate the Queen's Silver Jubilee.

Mr. Denzil Davies

The cupro-nickel version will be available from main post offices and from banks, including Trustee Savings Banks, at face value—25p—from 15th March. The silver version will be available only by direct mail order from the Royal Mint at £12.50 each, including presentation case, postage, and packing. Information on how to order these silver coins will be announced in the Press.

I have arranged for examples of both versions to be exhibited in the Library.
