Title Edward VII Coronation medal miniature
Nationality British
Period 1902
Sold

This is the miniature of the commemorative medal given to military and civilian personnel for the coronation of Edward VII in 1902. This particular example, remarkably, has the signature of the sculptor (Fuchs) behind the king's head, as well as the date 1901.

It has the original silk ribbon and two rather splendid gold pins on the back, I suspect for a court official, as (a) it is court mounted, and (b) the gold pins suggest that gold has been used deliberately to avoid tarnishing and thus marking the uniform, presumably scarlet.

The condition is virtually EF. The dark look of the medal is natural age tarnishing of the silver, not artificially induced.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Thank you, Chris. All arrived safely. Very quickly too, much quicker than from the US! Very satisfied. It is a nice sword.

Anyway, thanks again and I have marked your site for future interest.
