NGC PF 67 ULTRA CAMEO (6066350-037). Tranche cannelée. Par T. Humphrey Paget et revers d’après Benedetto Pistrucci. Flan bruni (PROOF). Sans doute la monnaie la plus exceptionnelle de la collection Paramount et de la numismatique britannique ! Pièce parfaite, sans aucun défaut. Les champs sont miroir et reflètent une lumière magnifique. Les reliefs sont nets et d’un mat complet, donnant un aspect camée d’intensité exceptionnelle (ULTRA CAMEO). Fleur de coin.
Édouard VIII, fils de Georges V, participe à la Première guerre mondiale dans les forces armées britanniques. Resté célibataire, il devient roi sous le nom d’Édouard VIII le 20 janvier 1936, montrant rapidement un esprit libre avec refus des protocoles de la cour et mépris des conventions. Il demande en mariage la mondaine américaine Wallis Simpson, en instance de son second divorce, provoquant une crise constitutionnelle ainsi qu’un conflit avec l’Église dont le roi est le chef suprême. Il choisit d’abdiquer le 11 décembre de la même année, après 10 mois et demi de règne, et épousera Wallis Simpson en juin 1937 en France où il passa le reste de sa vie avec le titre de duc de Windsor. Son frère Albert monta à sa suite sur le trône sous le nom de Georges VI. Le monnayage d’Édouard VIII est rarissime, et les quelques 200 matrices préparées dans le courant de 1936 furent détruites après son abdication. Seuls survécurent quelques essais du souverain (1 livre), 2 livres et 5 livres. Pour cette dernière, après l’exemplaire de la Royal Mint, seuls deux exemplaires sont connus dans la collection Tyrant et notre exemplaire. On sait par ailleurs qu’Édouard VIII lui-même n’avait pas eu de série des essais à son effigie ou nom
Edward VIII (January 20 - December 11, 1936). 5 Pounds, pattern, PROOF 1937, London. Obv. EDWARDVS VIII D: G: BR: OMN: REX F: D: IND: IMP. Bare head left, HP signature. The portrait on the coin was controversial as Edward VIII chose to show his face in profile from the left, when tradition dictated the profile should be to the right. Rv. Saint George slaying the dragon, in exergue (date) and B.P. signature. KM.Unl - Fr.406 (Very Rare) - S.4063 - Schneider.Unl - L&S. Unl - W&R.432 (R6); Gold - 38 mm - 12 h. Provenance: “Monaco Collection” and the Paramount collection n° 30339. NGC PF67 ULTRA CAMEO. Milled edge. Obverse by T. Humphrey Paget, reverse by Benedetto Pistrucci. Without doubt the most exceptional coin of the Paramount collection and of British numismatics! Flawless, perfect coin. The fields are mirrored and reflective. The reliefs are crisp and full matte, giving a magnificent cameo effect of exceptional intensity (ULTRA CAMEO). Fleur de coin. Edward VIII, son of George V, served in WWI with the British Armed Forces. He became King as Edward VIII on January 20, 1936. Early in his reign he displayed a free-spirit, refusing court protocols and disregarding conventions. He proposed to Wallis Simpson, an American socialite. She was in the process of getting her second divorce. It caused a constitutional crisis as well as a conflict with the Church of England, of which the King is the supreme head. Edward chose to marry Wallis Simpson and abdicated on December 11, 1936, after a ten and a half month reign. He married Wallis Simpson in June 1937 in France where he spent the rest of his life as Duke of Windsor. His brother, Albert, replaced him on the throne as George VI. Edward VIII coinage is extremely rare. The 200 or so dies prepared during 1936 were destroyed after his abdication. Only a few patterns of the 1 Pound (Sovereign), 2 Pounds and 5 Pounds remained. In addition to the Royal Mint coin, only two 5 Pounds coins are known. One is in the Tyrant collection and this coin. We also know that Edward VIII did not own any patterns bearing his likeness or name.
