British Coins

Item Description:

British Coins, Victoria, proof set, 1893, old or veiled head l., rev. St. George and the dragon , certified and graded by PCGS as follows: �5 (S.3872) PR65 DCAM, �2 (S.3873) PR65 DCAM, sovereign (S.3874) PR66 DCAM, half-sovereign (S.3878) PR65 DCAM crown PF63 CAMEO, half crowm PF64, two shillings PF63, one shilling PF65, sixpence PF64 and threepence PF64 (10)
This lovely set of exceptional quality consists of the four largest denominations struck for the proof set of this year, issued by the Royal Mint to illustrate the final portrait of Victoria. A seemingly original set showing delicate hazing over the deeply mirrored fields mainly on the �2, probably from the plush case in which it rested for more than a century. What is unusual, aside from the splendid technical condition of this set, is that all the coins share the same degree of frosted motifs, not only of the queen�s portrait but also of St. George and all of the letters and digits. If you are looking to acquire an 1893 gold set of superb appearance, it would take a great deal of patience to locate finer coins than these.
