Q:

What are Silver Jubilee commemorative coins worth?

A:

The value of a Silver Jubilee commemorative coin depends on a variety of factors including the condition of the coin, when the coin was issued and the issue of the coin. An uncirculated commemorative Silver Jubilee coin issued during the Jubilee year is potentially more valuable than a commemorative proof issued by the Mint at a later date. Uncirculated coins are never used as currency and are in perfect condition.

Silver Jubilee commemorative coins were issued for George V in 1935 and Queen Elizabeth II in 1977. The George V coin was issued as a silver Crown, or five-shilling piece. There were approximately 750,000 of the coins created with the lettering stamped. Another 2,500 were minted with the lettering raised as a proof coin.

Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee coin was issued as a 25-pence coin. The coins are treated as commemorative coins rather than used as currency and do not have the denomination written on the coin. The Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee coin experienced a rare printing error. A few of the issued coins were struck off-center on both the front and back. The error coin may have a higher value than the correctly minted one, according to Coin World staff member Jeff Starck.
