DescriptionEdward VII Specimen 10 Cents 1902-H SP66 PCGS, Heaton mint, KM10. An immaculate premium gem Specimen of King Edward's inaugural Canadian coinage. Edward VII officially became King on January 22, 1901, however his coronation ceremony wasn't held until over a year and a half later on August 9, 1902, and likewise no coins bore his titles until this year. With little information available, it seems plausible that specimen sets of this date, comprised of the 5, 10 and 25 cent denominations were minted and distributed in extremely limited quality to commemorate the coronation. Whatever the actual reason behind their existence, we know today that issues from 1902 are among the rarest, and as a result most desirable of all 20th century specimen types. This offering approaches technical perfection at SP66, and close inspection with a loupe reveals little reason why it would not be worthy of an even higher grade still. Sleek, gently lustrous surfaces of a matte texture sharply impressed by the dies producing needle-sharp detail to Edward's portrait and the reverse wreath; an all-out stunner and one which deserves placement in an elite Canadian collection.
