1902 Large Bronze Medal Ext Fine

In 1887 the Royal Mint started to issue a series of large sized medallions for historic events such as Coronations and Jubilee’s. The medallion offered here is of Edward VII in 1902, produced in bronze. Prices at antique fairs for these medallions are, I think extremely high, but I think you will like our prices even more… Supplies are limited.
