George III, Ceylon Patina Pewter

We were told by the people who struck the Patina crownsized retro patterns that striking anything in Pewter was something they did not relish. It is hard to strike, it is messy to strike and they would rather use another metal. But these George III Ceylon Patina retro patterns are struck in Proof Pewter and we think they look great. Forget the work and the mess the finished product is great. Because they were struck in Pewter, the mintages are limited. Get them while you can…

Scotland, George III Scottish Patina in Pewter

George III Scottish Patina in Pewter. This is the fabulous Patina George III issue for Scotland. It is based on the portrait of King George III by Kuchler that was used on the Bank of England Emergency issues for the Dollars of 1804. These are retro dated ‘1808’ and show what a Scottish issue might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. You have the bust of King George III on one side and the crowned double thistle on the other side. They are large crownsized pieces struck in Pewter. The mintage is only 1,000 pieces.

George III, Wales Patina Silver

This Wales crownsized Patina retro-pattern is based on the portrait of King George III that the Bank of England used on their emergency coinage in the early 1800’s. In fact I think this portrait is as good as that one. These Patina pieces are struck in Proof Sterling Silver. I don’t know what the mintages are, but I believe they are rather small. We bought this lot just recently from a dealer, but we don’t know where he got them from. You have the bust of King George III on one side and the symbol of which country it represents on the reverse. All are in Proof Sterling Silver.
