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.
