British Coronation Medals
A Coronation offers the perfect chance for a country to show itself off at its best, as well as formally anoint a new monarch.
British Coronation history is well documented, right down to full descriptions and images of British Coronation medals.
Official medallions have been issued for British coronations since James I in 1603. For the monarchs that reigned for more significant periods of time, notably George III, Queen Victoria and George V, Jubilee medallions were issued as well.
Medals commemorating Coronations or Jubilees can provide a collector with a themed journey through time, and can be more readily sourced due to the greater numbers that were issued for these important events.
Here are some of the British Coronation & Jubilee Medals from our exclusive collection:
1689 William and Mary Coronation Historical Medallion by R Arondeaux
1887 Art Union Jubilee Medal - Victoria Historical Medallion by A Gilbert

About Historical Medallions
You may be familiar with my late Aunt, Mrs Neddy Allen who was a numismatist for over 40 years, and had a special interest in medallions related to the City of London. She learnt about the medal business from her late husband, Peter Maundy Allen, and continued to trade well into her 80's. Over the last 15 years, she gradually passed on her knowledge to me and it was the stories behind each of the medallions that I found fascinating.
These historical events shaped our country and many have significance still to this day. Whether it be a gift for someone interested in a special event or something that adds to your collection, owning a medallion is to have a true piece of history to treasure.
