Edward VIII 1936 Wreath Copper
This crownsized Patina or retro-pattern Crown carries on the tradition of King George V
with his Wreath Crowns. These were low mintage crowns usually only issued at Christmas
time for presents. Remember the Great Depression was on and money was tough as were the
times for many people.
As no coins would have been issued for King Edward VIII until 1937 this is historically an
important Patina piece. Fully crownsized and struck in Proof copper it is rather beautiful. You
have the bare head of the King, who was never crowned on one side and the wreath with crown
on the other side.
