Record £516,000 for Royal Coin

Monday, May 19, 2014

A very rare coin bearing the head of Edward VIII has sold for a record £516,000, the highest sum ever paid for a British Coin.

There are only two 'proof' gold coins that were made to mark the kings coronation in 1937. There are only six of these coins that were made to show the king: four are in museums,  there are some in a complete set of rare sovereigns, this would be the sixth coin.

Fancy your very own British rare coin? The Gold Bullion Company is now selling a range of rare coins, get your hands on some while stocks last!
