Requester description: 1902 Large 1902 coronation coin with images of Edward and Alexandra on the face and on the back, centered in the upper 2/3rds, a castle image ringed by a band with the archaic letters. A half circle banner on the top circumference of the coin with the 'Royal Burgh...' Lettering. The date is in a ribbon below the castle and there are two different branches, one of which appears to be oak and not sure on the other. None Front: ?. M. Edward, REX; H.M. QUEEN ALEXANDRA, 1902; J.A. Restall (Small letters. At the base of image)
Back: ROYAL BURGH OF KINGHORN; CORONATION AUGUST 9TH 1902
The lettering surrounding the castle image appears to be more archaic, but as close as I can here: DE Kinghorne Scomvne B.R.V.?.I
