Queen is represented at State Opening of Parliament with £5b crown – plus 2,868 diamonds


How much is the Queen’s crown worth?

The Crown Jewels as a whole are said to be priceless because they are not insured, and haven’t been officially appraised.

However, there is an estimated value of between £3-5billion.

It was originally made for King Charles II back in 1661, as a replacement for the medieval crown which had been melted down in 1649 by the Parliamentarians.

The second version of the crown was commissioned from the Royal Goldsmith, Robert Vyner, in 1661. The current version was made in 1937.
