World Silver Crowns

Most countries stopped using silver coins around the time of the first world war. Britain, for example, reduced the silver content of its silver coins from 92.5% (sterling silver), after 1919, and further reduced this again after 1946 to zero, so that no British coins dated after 1946 were issued for circulation containing any silver. All silver coloured coins for circulation are now made from cupro-nickel, which as its name infers is an alloy of copper and nickel.

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 some issues of silver 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.
