Edward VIII, New Plain Edge Collection
Last year was the 80th anniversary of the Year of Three Kings, George V, Edward VIII and George VI. ICB have issued a beautiful Edward VIII collection, full crownsized in eight different metals with a plain edge as opposed to milled. We bought the entire mintage, except for one set that is being put into auction. Other Edward VIII issues are being sold on ebay for over £245 a collection. The metals they are struck in are: Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold Plated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver. A youthful portrait of the uncrowned King is on one side and a new version of St. George slaying the dragon is on the other side. Only 100 collections ever made with the plain edge that is all, forever.
