In allusion to Christ, the Scripture meaning of crown is, that all the merit of redemption is his; and as such, he wears the crown. Hence in the book of the Revelations, he is said to have been seen with many crowns on his head, (Revelation 19:12) meaning, from the different offices and characters which he sustained in accomplishing redemption, the crown of GODHEAD he wears in common with the Father and the Holy Ghost. But the crown of Mediator is peculiarly and personally his own. Hence, he is said to have "power over all flesh," as a Prince, and a Saviour, "for to give eternal life to as many as the Father hath given him." (John 17:2) Hence, when JEHOVAH bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith, "Let all the angels of God worship him." (Hebrews 1:6) And the crown of salvation put upon the sacred head of Christ by the church in one full body, and also by every individual of the church, multiplies the crowns of Jesus to an infinite extent, when any and every poor sinner is brought from darkness to light, and willingly and cheerfully ascribes the whole of his own personal salvation to the Lord Jesus Christ.
