I've done a reasonable search and I cannot see that this topic has been done before, at least not under that title or as "Crown Jewels".

I posted this envelope under the Cover Calendar thread and then it occurred to me that it might make a good topical display if there are others out there.

What can you add?

Picked this label up somewhere recently, not sure where. I think it might be from a set of Kings and Queens of England cindys.

Hungary- St. Stephen`s crown and the other insignia: orb, sceptre, mantle + sword (thought to be St. Stephen`s)




Quote:

here you`ll find some interesting data:
-`The Crown's shape is elliptic (the width is 203.9 mm, the length is 215.9 mm) and is larger than a (healthy) human's head.`
-`The weight of the Crown is 2056 g.`
=if the crown was made for him, he must have had a very large head and a strong neck...- by the way, you`ll find here a small photo on the right, with the last Hungarian king (and Austrian emperor) Charles IV. wearing the crown.... (his son, Otto von Habsburg died this year)

The Kandyan kingdom was the only native kingdom in Sri Lanka which was never conquered by any western power. It was ruled by a line of Tamil Kings, who came from South India, from 1737 to 1815. Here is an image a stamp (on piece) depicting the Kandyan royal crown, printed by lithogravure, and issued by Sri Lanka on January 18, 1977, Scott No. 518.

I'm surprised that no-one from GB has shown the Crown Jewels set that was released on 23rd August this year:

St. Edward's Crown is one of the oldest of British Crown Jewels and is considered the principal piece of the Regalia. After the original was destroyed by Oliver Cromwell, the crown was reconstructed for the coronation of King Charles II in 1661, and since then it is the crown traditionally used in the coronation of British monarchs. Here is an image of a stamp depicting St. Edward's Crown, printed by lithography, and issued by Belize on May 31, 1979 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Scott No. 437, plus a photo of the crown.
