Edward VIII 1936

Edward VIII Coins

On the 11th of December 1936, the then King Edward VIII, abdicated the throne in favour of his brother George VI. He did so to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Having proclaimed to the public at the time "I have found it impossible to carry on the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge the duties of king, as I would wish to do, without the help and support of the woman I love". From then on he took on the title of Duke of Windsor. 

While no portrait Edward VIII Coins were made, coins were issued in Britain's former colonies. British West Africa, for example, had three denominations struck, the 1/10th Penny, 1/2 Penny, and the Penny. You can find all the coins issued by the former colonies under Edward VIII collectables.

Below you'll find Patina Retro Patterns and reproductions showing what Edward VIII’s coinage might have looked like had he not abdicated.

So you won’t receive the usual ‘sourced to order’ message from us. Third, we are a family-owned business that firmly believes that coin collecting is the perfect hobby to bridge the generational gap.

Edward VIII, Wreath Set Plain, 1936

The Patina series had a ‘Wreath Crown’ but dated 1937 and the mintage was 975 pieces, we quickly sold out. Last year was the 80th anniversary of The Year of Three Kings, so we are proud to offer this 1936 Patina with a much lower mintage of just 100 pieces in each metal. This crownsized beauty was struck in eight different metals and with two edges, plain and milled. We bought almost the entire mintage, except for four sets which went to the INA archives and to auction. The pieces are beautiful full crownsized Proofs, struck in Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold-coated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver. We could break up the sets and sell the individual prices at a very high price, as we have seem similar sets sold on Ebay. But that is not how Coincraft works. We bought them right, so we are going to sell them right. On offer here is the Plain Edge set. You get the ‘1936 Wreath Crown Patina’ in all eight different metals. At this price they are a gift, eight different metals, crownsized Proofs and with a mintage of just 100 sets….
