It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer you the complete date set of King
Edward VII Pennies. To be honest, there just are not all that many around to make up collections.
We were saved by a friend, who took the time to sort the hoard of Edward VII Pennies
that he had accumulated over 20 years, by date and then make up complete date collections for
us. Not only did he make up date collections, but at a price that allows us to offer them to you
at a special price.
You get one of each date of King Edward VII Penny struck from 1902-1910. That means,
1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1910. Every coin is over 100 years old
and while circulated, are still in very reasonable condition. You get all 9 different dates, which
normally would sell for £24.50 as individual coins.
In the short reign of King Edward VII, only one crown was ever made, that was in 1902 for his Coronation. They have his bare head on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. They are struck in Sterling Silver and the mintage was just 250,000 Crowns.
This is a very important type coin, because if you want an Edward VII Crown you have to get 1902 one or none at all. We have been building our supplies up again and finally, have enough to offer this Edward VII Crown in Very Good condition.
It is now many years ago the 1st British Patina or retro-patterns were issued. The mintages were small, the quality was high and now we are almost out of most of them. But we do have the Edward VII Double Florin issue on offer, please remember that supplies are limited. Struck in Proof condition, but over the years they have toned some.
In 1905 King Edward VII was on the throne, finally having taken over from his late mother, Queen Victoria. Arthur Balfour is Prime Minister and Chelsea has just been elected to the Football League. The GPO had just gotten rid of horse-drawn carriages to deliver the mail from London to Brighton and replaced them with Motor Lorries.
The 1st public protest by a suffragette took place and Alf Common became the first £1000 football transfer.
The Farthing was the smallest denomination regularly issued. You had the King’s bare head on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. We can offer you the King Edward VII Farthing in Fine condition for your collection.
For us, one of the most interesting and difficult coins of King Edward VII has always been the One Third Farthing. It is the smallest coin issued by Edward VII and it was made for only one year 1902.
A Farthing was 960 to the pound and these are each one third of that Farthing.
Although legal tender and used in this country, they were mainly made for use in Malta and Ceylon. The mintage is just 288,000 and they are now 117 years old. This group came in from a dealer who bought them from someone who put them away in 1902. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and remember they are a one year type coin and very low mintage.
