The Festival of Britain Crown of George VI
There were only two crown types issued during the reign of George VI.
The first was in 1937 for his coronation, and the other was in 1951 for the Festival of Britain. This featured the famous St. George and Dragon reverse design.
Crowns had been a currently circulating coin, and had been produced regularly until 1902, the first year of Edward VII's reign. No crowns intended for circulation were issued in George V's or George VI's reign.
1951 crowns were issued in a cardboard box,
