Medal: Great Britain Coronation of William and Adelaide  1831
Medal: Great Britain Coronation of William and Adelaide 1831

What an amazing medal. They come in bronze, silver, and gold, in commemoration of the coronation of William IV and his wife Adelaide. Any of them would be a fine addition to any collection.

Value, of course, varies with metallic composition and state of preservation. Here are approximate catalog values:

BRONZE MEDAL:
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $90
fully uncirculated: $300

SILVER MEDAL:
worn: $35 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $65
well preserved: $150
fully uncirculated: $600

GOLD MEDAL:
worn: $1000 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1200
well preserved: $1600
fully uncirculated: $2500

The gold example in our main picture comes from Stack's Bowers. Stack's medal sold for $1900 US dollars in a 2011 auction. Another price point is set by the bronze medal which is currently on sale at M&H Coins in London. M&H has it listed for 175 GBP, or about $290 USD. If you had a bronze medal and wanted to sell it to a reputable dealer like M&H, figure the offer to buy your medal would be between $100 and $150. The markup is necessary to keep the dealership solvent.

CoinQuest thanks Stack's Bowers and M&H Coins for use of their great coin photos.
