Coins of South Africa from Various Properties

WORLD COINS, Paul Kruger, Pond, 1898, with '99' overstamp (Hern Z52; KM. 10.2; F 2). Extremely fine or better, very rare [slabbed NGC AU 58] £34,000-40,000


The 1899 dies never arrived in Pretoria, so it was decided to overstamp 1898-dated ponds. The first coin received a single '9' overstamp; mint officials thought subsequent coins would be better overstamped with '99' and 130 coins were thus produced, this coin has been with the family since 1900
