Auction 185
English Coins Lot
2406
1836 Gold with , Wilson & Rasmussen 273, ESC 1921, Bull 2518, Davies 380G, weight 3.43 grammes, in an NGC holder and graded PF63, rated R5 by Wilson & Rasmussen, (estimated 6-10 specimens known). An excessively rare and desirable example of the V Britannia type. Four different patterns of this date were minted in gold, two of which used the '4P in field' type reverse, the remaining two used the Britannia reverse later adopted for the currency issue, namely this piece and an equivalent piece struck on a thin flan. Of significant interest to the Gold Pattern collector, or specialist collector of the series. By comparison, the coins included in the 1831 Proof set each had a mintage of 225 pieces, so if you are interested in choice rarities of the sort offered globally once or twice a decade this is the lot for you
