The Crown is a piece of headgear found in Spelunky 2. It is found on top of a statue found in Vlad's Castle in the Volcana. The Crown is the Volcana equivalent to the Hedjet.
The crown not only makes the player worthy enough to pull the Excalibur out of its stone, but also grants access into The City of Gold when used with the Scepter.
Uniquely, the Crown causes Shopkeepers to treat players as royalty, calling them "your highness", and even offering a 50% discount to players with the Crown for all items.
