Edward VII 1902 Matt Proof Set

Edward VII (1901-10), Matt Proof four gold and nine silver coin Set, 1902, Coronation year, gold Five Pounds, Two Pounds, 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.PS9). Lightly hairlined, silver a little unevenly toned, otherwise as struck.

Purchased recently from a dealer who bought it privately from a family who verbatim owned it since c. December 1910, it having been in a bank deposit box in the Channel Islands since that time until December 2013.

These "long 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 8,066 sets. This year is the only time a matt finish set has been produced thus far for a Coronation.
