    Sadly I remember those days. I was a child but the lines on the tv news amazed me. I was a 10 year old coin collector at the time. Silver disappeared out of circulation fast.

    Thanks for the memories @CoinCorgi

    I stole it from @ziggy9. Haven't seen him around much here recently. Knew him from the BNS when I lived in Boston 10 years

    I wish I would have had some foresight when I joined. I would have used the name “Nobody”..... then when I liked a post it would say.. “Nobody Likes This”..... Reckon that could hurt sensitive feelings?

    This British newspaper front page has a small article on coins of Edward VIII:

    [​IMG]
    Daily Herald newspaper, December 11, 1936

    [​IMG]
    No coins of King Edward

    NO COINS OF KING EDWARD
    RUSH TO BUY STAMPS
    No King Edward VIII coins will ever be in circulation.

    No coins could have been made before a royal proclamation announcing the date on which the coinage would come into circulation.

    Such a proclamation was expected this month. It would have described the design for the King's head and the designs of the reverse sides for the different denominations.

    The existing King Edward stamps will be issued until the stocks are exhausted.

    Within a quarter of an hour of the abdication announcement, post offices at [S...] were raided yesterday by philatelists. They purchased all King Edward stamps of the higher denominations.

    :)
