What's in a name?
According to the 1935 A.S. Crockett book The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book, the Coronation was created in anticipation of the "ten minutes' rest the late King Edward got when they sat him on the Stone of Scone." Sometimes called the Stone of Destiny or the Coronation Scone, it was used for centuries during the coronation of Scottish and English royalty and was supposedly housed at an abbey in Scone, Scotland.
