closed 1859 sovereign (not Ansell) NGC AU53 £550

Recommended Posts

My friend was selling this rare (not my opinion taken from the Marsh book so please make no claim to me if you do not agree it is rare) beautiful sovereign in Aunc condition and I could not let it go so cheaply so bought it and thought i would offer this reasonably priced coin  to members of the SF. 

1859 Gold shield Sovereign - Victoria Young Head Shield Back. The lack of mint mark denotes the London Mint. No die number.  You will receive the actual coin pictured. 

Mintage 1,547,603. Known surviving coins 16,323 as of 1954 (Unverified). 7 in this grade and 23 graded higher.

NGC Cert # 2822035-003

This is one of those coins that if it was a beautiful  well preserved woman, with good lustre and nice surface detail,  walking down the street and you did not try to speak to her, you will live to regret it.
