2016 was the 80th anniversary of the Year of Three Kings. King George V died, his eldest son Edward became King Edward VIII, he abdicated in December and his younger brother became King George VI. The small island nation of Tristan da Cunha celebrated this historic event a few years early in 2012 with a most attractive and beautiful memento. They have a crown with Queen Elizabeth II on one side and the three Kings of 1936 on the other side, George V, Edward VIII and George VI. These crowns are plated with gold and some of them were also highlighted with Rhodium, one of the most expensive metals ever. We managed to buy a group from one of the dealers that originally bought these crowns and it is the first time that we have seen them, let alone be able to offer them to our collectors.
Each crown is in Proof condition and comes in a collector’s case to protect the coin, while still allowing you to view both sides without having to touch it.
