Last crown[edit]

It says here that the last crown was in 1980. But I seem to have got one from 1981, with Charles & Di on. Presuming it IS a crown. Looks like one, but I'm no expert. -Nommo

Drat -- you're right, I overlooked that one and thought the Queen Mum's 80th birthday one was the last. Thanks for bringing it up -- Arwel 21:42 20 Jun 2003 (UTC)


I came looking for what a non-commemerative crown had been worth in L/s/d, and eventually found 5s after almost stopping reading, believing 5L would be the only value mentioned. Could someone who understands the chronology better than i fix the chronology better than i have?

I think a big part of the problem is that this was written as an article not on the currency as used, but as collected today. I doubt the topic is worth two articles, and if not, the one should serve both purposes; much stricter attention to chronology is probably the best aid to accomplishing that.

Fair use rationale for Image:BritishCrown.jpeg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BritishCrown.jpeg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:34, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
