No 1937 Edward VIII penny coins were struck for circulation. There were a very small number
of pattern coins produced but these are very rare and command a high price as they are
highly sought after by collectors.

picked up for only a few pounds. The replicas shouldn't be treated as a numismatic item but
they are a novelty and they do fill a gap for some collectors.
