Official Coronation Medallion Edward VII 1902
This medallion was issued to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII on the 9th August 1902. It was struck by the Royal Mint, and was produced in two sizes, and three metals, gold, silver and copper. The specimen in our photograph is in copper, and measures 56 mms. in diameter.

Date Variations
These medallions are found with two different dates, 26th June 1902, and 9th August 1902. This is because the coronation was originally scheduled for the earlier date, but Edward had to undergo an emergency appendectomy operation, so the coronation was postponed until the later date. Compare this with the 1902 Coronation Blackpool Medallion.

Presentation Box
The medallions were issued complete with a red leather case, inscribed in gold leaf with a crowned "ER VII" cypher, and:-
