Weight: 28.28 Grams / Diameter: 38.61mm. Presentation: Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as PR69 DCAM. 925 Sterling Silver Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as PR69 DCAM. At midnight on 31 December 1999, there will be a vital moment shared by the thousand years past and the thousand years that stretch head. Poised on the threshold of time, the British Isles are shown carefully positioned on a symbolic clockface, the hands set at the crucial twelve o'clock between the dates 1999 and 2000 and appropriately pivoted at Greenwich, the Prime Meridian of the World Time. The significance of the moment is emphacised in the words chosen for the edge inscription WHAT'S PAST IS PROLOGUE taken from Shakespeare's'The Tempest'. They appear as raised edge lettering around the edge of the Coin, a feature popular with collectors but rarely seen in recent years. Gracing the obverse of the Fiftieth Birthday Crown is the new effigy of Her Majesty the Queen by sculptor and medallist Ian Rank Broadley. These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks. Why is a Certified coin a better investment?
