What is the crown icon in the top right of images?

By on 3rd March 2017

The crown icon at the top of some coin images is accompanied by a bronze, silver or gold border/background and indicates that the coin is currently in more demand and usually worth more than face value. Gold coins currently sell for the most and/or are quite hard to find, silver coins are not as expensive as gold coins and bronze status coins are often just slightly more than face value.
