Edward VIII, GB Coronation Patina Crown Set

Edward VIII GB Coronation Patina Crown Set. We all know what the King George VI Coronation Crown looks like, but what if Edward had carried on and been crowned our King? These Patina Retro Patterns show exactly what it would have looked like. The bare head of the King facing left and the supported coat of arms on the reverse. It is retro dated 1936 and has the complete legend on it. They only made 750 sets of these, in Silver, copper and goldine and we bought most of them. But over the years our supplies have dwindled and we now have only about 30 sets left. All three pieces are crownsized and struck in Proof condition. You get all three pieces for just £89.50. But please remember only about 30 sets left and once they are gone, no doubt the prices of them will rise. It always seems that when we run out, the prices on Ebay and elsewhere go up.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Unc, 1955

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Unc, 1955

The 1955 Wren Farthing was the penultimate, or the next to last Farthing to ever be struck. In 1956 the last ever Farthing was struck. For some reason, this penultimate Farthing is rather difficult to find in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You have the youthful bust of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, remember that she only came to the throne in 1952, and on the other side you have a beautiful little wren. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 63 years old. For those of you too young to remember, there were 240 Pennies to the Pound and 4 Farthings to the Penny. So that a pound’s worth of Farthings would have been 960 coins. Don’t we wish we had the money and had put them away at the time?

Picture of Elizabeth II, Coronation Halfpenny, 1953

Elizabeth II, Coronation Halfpenny, 1953

One of the most difficult denominations to get, in Uncirculated condition, is the Halfpenny. It was a denomination that was regularly used and thus usually comes in circulated condition. We went through one of our vault rooms and found a box of 1953 Coronation Halfpennies in Uncirculated condition taken from the Mint Set of that year; they came out of a plastic folder. Over the past 65 years, they have mellowed a bit, but they have never seen circulation. Years ago we offered the 1953 Penny and that quickly sold out; we expect the same thing to happen on the Coronation halfpenny.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1953

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1953

In 1953 the Royal Mint issued new coins for the new Queen, Elizabeth II. But the legend was different from all the coins that were to come, so that the 1953 coins and the Farthing in particular are one year type coins. This is important because there were only 4 dates of Elizabeth II Farthings ever issued, 1956 being the last date of issue. Because the 1953 Coronation Farthing is a one year type, it is also the most difficult one to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We bought a group that had been put away in 1953, some 65 years ago and had lain undisturbed until now. Add a one year type, 1953 Coronation Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated to your collection, they are not easy to get.
