Bermuda, 1959 Sterling Silver Crown, Commemorating Bermuda's 350th anniversary, UNC

British Colony (Pound Sterling Coinage) issue in small Perspex case, and Certificate. This special Crown piece was struck in commemoration of the 350th Anniversary of Bermuda's founding as a British colony. The obverse shows the official profile of Her Majesty the Queen, which is encircled with the words "Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina." The design on the reverse is intended to symbolize the romantic history of the Bermuda's. The words "One Crown" indicate not only the coin's value, but as well that Bermuda has been under the single Crown of British sovereignty since its founding in 1609. The two boats appearing above and below the outline of the mid-at-lantic island chain depict Bermuda's famous sailing heritage that actually began with a shipwreck. Shown at the top is a design of the internationally famed Bermuda Sloop, a speedy craft built of native cedar that served as the lifeline of the colony in her early trading days.
