Medals and Trial Pieces

Item Description:

Medals and Trial Pieces, British Colonial coinage, George V, lead impression of the crowned effigy, by Sir Edgar Betram Mackennal, apparently in coinage relief, bust l., wearing ermine robes and neck badge of the Bath and Garter collar, signed B.M. on truncation, without legend, on a wide (63.97mm.) and thick (8.41mm.) planchet, good very fine
*ex Colin Mackennal Kraay Collection and Baldwin’s vault
‘No record has so far been found of the die from which this impression was taken and its purpose is not known. The effigy matches in size that on the coinage intermodel of 14.3.1911 and it seems likely that the die was taken from the intermodel, which also lacks inscription’.
