Information about effigy: St Edward's Crown

St Edward's Crown
Australia / Two Dollars 2013 Coronation (Purple)

St Edward's Crown is named after Saint Edward the Confessor, one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England (1042 - 5 January 1066).

It has been traditionally used to crown English and British monarchs at their coronations since the 13th century (with a two-century gap between 1689 and 1911). On coinage, it is used to mark symbols related to the British monarchy - for example, to crown the monarch's monogram, or the value on some denominations.

The symbol is used mostly on coinage of the United Kingdom, but also on colonial/Commonwealth coinage as well - such as the Australian sovereign series.
