Although Edward VII acceded to the throne in 1901, he was not crowned until 1902, and the first coins issued for him were dated 1902, all 1901 dated coins continuing to bear Queen Victoria's head. As sovereigns remained in circulation as pound coins until the first world war, most Edward sovereigns are quite worn. This means higher grades are quite rare, more valuable and collectable and if you are lucky enough to find one from the Ottawa mint you have stumbled on quite a rare specimen. The Canadian Mint in Ottawa (mintmark “C”) opened for sovereign production in 1908 and continued through to 1919.
