I have 4 crowns on my Swedish 4 daler plate.


And I can count 6 crowns on my MTT. Do any coins have more?


Emperors are notoriously immodest. But did you count the eagle's halos?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


No Peter, the 4 obvious ones and the two little ones marked in green.  :)

The Crown of Saint Stephen, worn by the kings of Hungary. The cross on it looks bent. I hope those angels were careful with it when they were carrying it.

Hungary, 5 korona, 1906, and 1 korona, 1913.
I thought there was some significance to the bent cross, but apparently not. It was damaged by some means in the 17th century, probably from careless handling, and never straightened. Not a very interesting story, but there you go.
