We issued this medal was issued in 1981, and it was one of only two engagement medals that we issued at the time. The other one was one that we issued with informal portraits on it. The formal one has Prince Charles in a military uniform and Diana in cocktail dress. It is struck in Proof like cupro-nickel and the mintage was rather small. We just found 120 pieces in one of the vault rooms, having been put away for the past 38 years. I am going to offer them at what I think the original price was in 1981, but please remember that there are only 120 pieces available.
When Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, we issued a medal to honour the event. We did it with formal portraits of the couple and issued it in several different metals.
The ones on offer today are in cupro-nickel. The mintage was rather small, especially compared to the number of other medals and crowns that were issued worldwide. Steve found them in one of the vault rooms. I had completely forgotten about them. Supplies are limited.
This Half Sovereign sized gold medal was issued years ago by
Pobjoy Mint. It honours the H.M.S. Royal Sovereign, a ship
under King Charles II. On one side you have the ship (1637-1696)
and on the other side you have the bust of King Charles II. They are
struck in Proof hallmarked 9ct Gold. Each one comes with a Pobjoy
certificate in a plastic wallet, just the way they were issued.
I think they are beautiful pieces and one that I have not seen in
years and years. It was a limited edition all those years ago.
The famous family of Swiss engravers named the Dassier Family, in the late 1700’s did a series of medals depicting British Kings and Queens.
Today this set will sell for well over £1,500. A few years ago a British mint reissued this collection in a superb, huge four tray wooden presentation case. There are a total of 32 different high relief medals struck in a two toned copper finish. They go from William I to George II, as they were originally made in the reign of King George III.
This re-issue was made to sell for £595, as the four tray wooden case must have cost them about £100, plus you have the 32 different Kings & Queens medals. At that time The Dassier Family were perhaps, the finest engravers in the world. But we are not going to charge you the £595 for the collection. No, we are going to offer up to 100 lucky collectors the chance to own it for only £195. But we are also going to give you a copy of the large hard bound book ‘The Medals of
