Britannia failed to appear on any coins of Edward VIII simply because no British coins were ever issued for him, except for a few rare patterns...

None of his coins were ever issued for Britain. The designs which had been prepared for his bronze coins were the same as were used on those of George VI.


A very small number of pattern coins are known to exist, but are very rare, which is why we currently do not have a photograph on this page.

Wanted - We want to buy any Edward VIII coins including those featuring Britannia, particularly in better grades, so that we can display photographs on this page.
