Own a piece of Edwardian history with our range of Edward VII coins, including Sovereigns, crowns, medals and coin sets ...

Although he only reigned for nine years – which was markedly less than the 63-year rule of his mother, Queen Victoria – Edward VII was monarch during a fascinating time of British history. Ascending the throne in 1901, he became king as the country was adjusting to life in a new century. Political reform was taking place with the newly formed Labour party, and women’s suffrage was beginning to emerge as a key social issue. Despite unrest, this pre-war era was often remembered fondly as a time of relative peace – an impression undoubtedly helped by George VII’s reputation for forming good relations throughout Europe.
