Why are the Crown Jewels not insured?
When the crown is not being used at coronations, it is on display at the Tower of London alongside other pieces from the collection which pull in 30 million visitors every year. The historical nature of the Crown Jewels means a price cannot be put on the collection, making it impossible to insure.
