Picture of Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation. So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are included. Available here in Fine condition.

Edward VII Small Coronation Medallion EF_obv

Edward VII Small Coronation Medallion EF

In 1902 Edward VII was finally crowned King, after the death of his Mother, Queen Victoria. He had waited a long time for this to happen and it almost didn’t as he had an appendicitis attack and the Coronation had to be postponed. In those days, people died of appendicitis. The Royal Mint issued a rather handsome small Official Silver medallion to honour the Coronation in 1902. It had King Edward VII’s bust on one side and his Queen, Alexandra’s bust on the other side. They are in a very contemporary design and are struck in Sterling Silver. He was a very popular King and these sold quite quickly from the Royal Mint. We can offer them in Extremely Fine. Remember that they are now 116 years old!
