Edward VIII, Wreath Set Milled, 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; here we offer you the milled-edged variant. 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.
