Following the Royal Wedding our Antique Appreciation group gathered memorabilia that commemorates special events and celebrations. As you would expect almost all the items shared were made to celebrate events of a royal nature or were war medals.
One remarkable find among a collection of coins was a gold sovereign and half sovereign in their post box style tin. As you can see from the pen they are quite small for such valuable coins - thanks Kate for bringing these along and Clint for discovering their importance.
The most unusual item was an Airforce Squadron bottle of wine developed to commemorate the last flight of the Air Force's Iroquois helicopter prior to their retirement in 2015.
Another nostalgic item was a child's dress worn by Maria Anderson to mark her first day at school. A small child's coat hanger with insignia of Princess Elizabeth and a fabric pram to mark Prince George's birth in 2013 were also present.
