1937 Stunning Edward Viii Proposed Coronation Medal Gilded Copper Birmingham For Sale
1937 A Magnificent Edward VIII Proposed Coronation Medallion 35mmI'm offering this beautifully struck commemorative medallion, issued for the coronation of Edward VIII in 1937 at a low 99p start with . The coronation, of course, which never happened because the King famously abdicated in 1936 so that he could marry Wallis Simpson, the love of his life. He was prevented from marrying her and at the same time remaining King, by British royal protocols. My research leads me to believe this originates from the mint at Birmingham and it seems likely it can be attributed to Pinches apparently. It certainly bears a resemblance in style to a number of Pinches medals I have seen.
Not only is this medal beautifully struck, it is in superb condition. It's not absolutely perfect - although there is no wear as such, there are a couple of minute scratches on both sides and a slight edge nick at 12 o'clock on the obverse. But to me it doesn't detract from the aura of this very handsome medallion. It is 35mm in diameter and it weighs 18.2g. A real beauty that glows with lustre. I believe it to be in gilded copper or possibly brass.
