Reverse of 1989 Portuguese 250 Escudos for the 850th Anniversary of the Founding of Portugal
World Crowns
Most countries have issued crown sized coins. At about 33 to 40 millimetres, they are the largest sized coins which have been regularly issued world-wide.

Commemoratives & Collectors' Issues
Fortunately since about the mid 1960's, some countries have taken to issuing special commemorative coins for sale to collectors, and these have included many issues of crown sized coins.

Smaller Sizes
We have included a few coins in this list which are below what would be considered to be a "normal" crown size of about 35+mm, because we felt they fitted into this category better than elsewhere. Please check the "Diameter" column for individual coins.
