Victoria, Bonomi Design (Australia) Silver Patina Matt Proof

Bonomi was an engraver who privately made patterns for Victorian Crowns, These were most unusual as the design was engraved incuse rather than raised. The portrait of Queen Victoria was not the most flattering we have ever seen. Of course, the designs were not accepted, but today they bring thousands of pounds from collectors. We believe the secret is time, it changes a lot of things. Our friend in Manchester decided a number of years ago to use the Bonomi design and make some Patina retro patterns of British interest. We believe he made between 50 and 70 pieces of each in Sterling Silver. We bought all that he had left. This is the Australia issue in Matt Proof Sterling Silver. A very limited number is available and they're worth having

Patina Silver Bonomi Scotland Matt Proof_obv

Victoria, Bonomi Design (Scotland) Silver Patina Matt Proof

When Victoria became Queen, there was a sort of contest to design her new coinage. An engraver by the name of Bonomi came up with something unique at the time. He wanted to make the bust and legend below the surface of the coin. It was unusual and different, so it was rejected. It was rather handsome, a few years ago the Patina Series decided to use that as a base for new designs. This time they would make the reverse to honour Scotland, Ireland and Australia. The obverse still had the incuse portrait of Queen Victoria but the reverses were now different, one for each country. They are struck in crown-sized Matt Proof Sterling Silver with mintages between 50 and 70 pieces of each. They are beautiful, they are Rare and we think they are priced low enough to amaze you. Remember today the Royal Mint charges about £82 for a silver crown-sized piece with the mintage running into the thousands. For a Silver Patina of this low mintage you would expect to pay over £100. We have just 30 and we are going to offer them to you while they last.

Victoria, Patina Double Florin Copper

The Double Florin was only issued with the Jubilee Head of Queen Victoria from 1887-1890.

Here we present the Patina in bronzed copper. Well worth having…

William IV Ireland Patinas_obv

William IV, Ireland Patinas

These crownsized Patina were issued to show what Irish crowns of William IV might have looked like, had they actually been issued. On the obverse you have the bust of William IV just like it looks on the 1831 British crown. The reverse has a crowned Irish Harp, they are retro-dated 1830 so as not confuse collectors. They are beautiful crownsized pieces in Prooflike condition. We also doubt if anyone else has any for sale. We know we bought them about 20 years ago from the man who made them. The workmanship is outstanding especially on the bust of William IV. A pattern crown of 1831 will cost you £10,000-£20,000.

Year of the Three Kings Cupro-Nickel Set of 3_obv

Year of the Three Kings Cupro-Nickel Set of 3

It was in 1936 that we had three Kings, George V, Edward VIII and George VI. It had never happened before and it is most unlikely that it will ever happen again. Years ago we did a set of three medallions to honour the Year of Three Kings and we only recently found these pieces. Yes, we know they are hard to misplace, but you have not seen our vault rooms… You get one crownsized medallion with the portrait of King George V, one with the portrait of King Edward VIII, and one with the portrait of King George VI. The reverse tells you about the three Kings of 1936. We found these sets as issued in Cupronickel. Remember that the price is for all three medallions and all are in Brilliant Unc condition.
