description

estimate

1793 Joaquim Arcoverde de Albuquerque Cavalcanti (January 17, 1850 – April 18, 1930) spectacular 8 ounces gold medal 1906, Arcoverde was the first Cardinal to be born in Latin America. He was known as "Cardeal Arcoverde". Only three of these medals were struck one for The Pope in The Vatican, one for Cardinal Arcoverde and this one which was given to President Rodrigues Alves President of Brazil 1902 -1906. Choice MS65 graded and encapsulated by NGC and attributed by them with the provenance of Alves. So exceptionally rare and desirable in many respects the Papal and Catholic significance, the Latin American significance the spectacular size (8 oz gold) and design, and thought to be the only one available to commerce so unique to the general collectors market. Ex Heritage April 2015 Lot 29441 realised $17,037.50 £8,000 - £14,000
