Reverse side of a 1844 Young Victoria Silver Crown Coin
The reverse side of a Crown silver coin, minted in London in 1844. Queen Victoria was on the throne. This coin's side bears the letters:
BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID: DEF.
( The same coin's obverse side bears young Queen Victoria's head and the words:
VICTORIA DEI GRATIA 1844,
with the letter “O” of Victoria level with the tip of the nose. )
The coin contains 92.5% silver. In 1844 I'm told that 1 Crown was equal to 5 shillings (at the same era, 1 guinea was equal to 21 shillings and 1 pound was equal to 20 shillings).
