Edward VII 1902 matt proof Set Sovereign down

Edward VII (1901-10), Matt Proof two gold and nine silver coin Set, 1902, Coronation year, gold Sovereign and Half-Sovereign, silver Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Maundy Set, all housed in original Royal Mint case with gold block crest and lettering (S.PS10). Toned with hardly any hairlines, some light flecking, practically as struck.

These "short gold" proof sets were produced to celebrate the Coronation of King Edward VII on the 9th August 1902 (having been postponed from 26th June due to the King's appendicitis), with a mintage of 7,057 sets, which is over 1,000 less than the full "long" gold matt proof set. This year is the only time a matt finish set has been produced thus far for a Coronation.


The case with the more unusual blue pad arrangement of the coins with Crown at top centre and gold coin either side.
