Portraits of a Prince
Coins, Medals and Banknotes of
Edward VIII

By Joseph S. Giordano Jr.

Giordano Portraits of a Prince This publication, which is the most comprehensive listing ever published of Currency Coins and Paper Money, Medals, Patterns, Trial Pieces and Badges of Edward VIII, is the result of 25 passionate years of collecting, research and writing by the author, Joseph Giordano Jr., a native of New York.

This work is truly comprehensive in its coverage, dealing with Investiture, Coronation, Jubilee, Abdication, Royal visits and Prize medals along with many others including retrospective pieces. Contemporary currency of the UK and Dominions including patterns and trials are covered together with paper money, badges and fantasy pieces.

A rarity index is included to provide some idea of the scarcity, in real terms, of the pieces together with a price range for each piece in US$. Nearly every piece is illustrated and there are numerous further illustrations of King Edward VIII at various stages of his life.

Quarto, 704 pages, fully illustrated with values in US$. Casebound. 49.50
