Engraver: Benedetto Pistrucci

Benedetto Pistrucci was a distinguished Italian Gem-engraver, medallist and coin-engraver who became Chief-medallist at the Royal Mint in England.




This was a special commemorative issue related to the coronation of Edward VII, the only other two pound coin struck in Australia, also at the Sydney mint, was in 1887 for the Jubilee of Queen Victoria. After the closure of the Sydney mint in 1926 the dies for this coin were brought to the Melbourne mint and may have been employed there before being defaced and sent to the Dixon Collection in Sydney (now in the State Library of New South Wales, Dixon Collection).
