I think you'll find that it's this coach, although the article could use some editing.

I remember on 2 June 1953, watching part of the coronation procession on a 'new fangled' television in the window of the local wireless (radio) shop - in black and white.   Later more was seen on the 'Newsreel' at the local pictures (cinema).   I also had a model of the coach.

A point to note is that the coin is not a UK issue, being from the Channel Island of Alderney.

I can see a cost-saving item for two royal houses. After all, what's the likelihood of both of them having a marriage or coronation on the same day? Maybe New Zealand wants to buy the British carriage for when Britain becomes a republic?

Perhaps not, they'd try to pay in €uros.
