Edward VIII, Abdicated Hanover King, House of Windsor January to December 1936

Bare Head. Although Edward abdicated the throne in December 1936, all of his English patterns are dated 1937. This 12-sided piece is one of the rarest of all modern coins; it is the earliest pattern of this reign, featuring a reverse design which differs from the accepted pattern that is part of the complete Edward VIII Proof set in this collection. One of the great treasures of the Tyrant Collection.

A lustrous, choice and truly beautiful specimen with evenly toned golden green surfaces.
