I have one Coronation teaspoon EIIR - 2 June 1953 - Made in England and not sure of its value, if you could please advise?

Answer
Hello.

Since there are no marks to indicate the spoon is made of sterling, it probably is made of silver plate. Therefore, any value would be based not on silver content but on how much a collector of souvenir spoons would pay. Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with such items. I have seen similar pieces sell in the $5 to $15 range but it is highly dependent on how many collectors there are of this item.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
