Edward VII, Cyprus Bare Head Patinas
This is one of the rarest Patina retro patterns made. It has the bare head of King Edward VII on one side and the crowned arms of Cyprus on the other side. They are Double Florin sized and they only made 120 pieces in silver, copper, and goldine. They are retro-dated 1901 and are very handsome and rare pieces. We bought the entire mintage many years ago and only recently found them in one of our strong rooms. They are listed in Krause’s Unusual World Coins and Cyprus is a very collected former British Colony. We think we have priced them and they are available in Silver, Goldine, and Copper struck in proof condition and are very attractive. Supplies are very limited.
