We were looking through some Sterling Silver Shilling that we bought from New Guinea and we realised that we had two Kings represented, George V and George VI. Then we remembered that we had some Pennies of King Edward VIII of New Guinea, the only coin struck for him. So why not combine the three and you would have 3 Kings of New Guinea. So here is what you will get a Sterling Silver Shilling of King George V of New Guinea, all of these coins are struck with a hole in the middle for wearing around your neck. They are in Very Fine condition. A Penny of King Edward VIII in Uncirculated condition. Finally a Sterling Silver Shilling of King George VI also in Very Fine condition. We can’t think of any other country that we could do this for, nor any other country so far away and so exotic.
The Edward VIII pieces from New Guinea feature their magnificent bird, the Bird of Paradise. It was about the time of his reign that they discovered in the middle of Papua New Guinea over one million people that they didn’t know existed. It is a rather mysterious and exciting country and one that is unknown to most of us. We can offer the crownsized Edward VIII medallic patterns from New Guinea. They are one of the most beautiful of the series and not the easiest to find. Available in Uncirculated Brass.
