Availability: In stock
SKU: NEG8807

Queen Victoria’s son, Edward VII, had to wait a long time to become King, not unlike our Prince Charles. But it almost didn’t happen. Just before the Coronation he had appendicitis which, in those days, you died from. They preformed a ‘new’ operation and he lived and the Coronation happened, only slightly postponed.
This is the Official Silver Coronation medal issued by the Royal Mint to honour that event in 1902, some 115 years ago. You have the crowned bust of King Edward VII on one side and his Queen Alexandra on the other side.
These are struck in Matt Proof Sterling Silver, the only year this finish was used. Beautiful silver medallions which are getting harder and harder to find. The medals offered are Extremely Fine condition and 115 years old.

George III, GB Incurrupta Patina Cupro-nickel

This is a Patina or retro-pattern to show what something might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. These are privately minted to the highest quality and are full crownsized 38mm. This is the George III pattern Crown issued with a large head of George III and an inscription that has caused it to be known as the Incorrupta Pattern. It is struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel to the highest standard. Because we bought these years ago, we can offer them at what seems almost a crazy low price. If they were made today, they would cost a heck of a lot more money.
