Great Britain. "Ansell" Sovereign, 1859. S-3852E; Fr-387g; KM-736.3. Victoria, 1837-1901. Young Head left. Reverse: Crowned shield within filleted laurel wreath; rose, shamrock and thistle spray below. Very rare in all states, and struck from "brittle gold" supplied by Ansell from Australia, reputedly as an experiment, the distinguishing feature being an added ribbon line in the queen's hair band. 1859 is the only date known of this very rare variety. Perhaps the finest one known! NGC graded MS-63.
Estimated Value $6,000 - 7,000.
Ex Dr Jacob Y. Terner Collection.
