Edward VII five cent cufflinks
Pair of vintage silver five cent coin cufflinks shows the effigy of Edward VII on the front and the year of minting on the back. It is a rare coin as Edward VII only had a 9 year reign of which the coin was only minted in 3 years - 1903, 1904 and 1905. The coin is 80% silver with a diameter of 15mm. The button and chain backing is made of sterling silver and the entire cufflink is rhodium plated to match the colour of a newly minted coin.
It was Edward VII who as the fun loving Prince of Wales adopted and popularised the dinner jacket (N. America: tuxedo) as the outfit for formal evening occasions for men.
Photo opposite of working die for the coin is from the 2012 exhibition 'Hong Kong Currency' at the Hong Kong Museum of History.
