PR62 DCAM | UNITED KINGDOM. George IV, 1820-30.
Gold 5 pounds (5 sovereigns), 1826. Royal Mint. Proof.
The 1826 Proof 5 Pound is celebrated by many as one of the most impressive and beautiful designs of all British coinage. It has seen values soaring past £200,000 for the best examples and surely this will continue, considering it is considerably scarcer than the Una and the Lion 5 Pound of 1839. This is a rare occasion to obtain an excellent example with the coveted Deep Cameo designation awarded by PCGS who tends to be stricter with grading. The coin truly 'pops'; slight scuffing in places is lost among the coins superior characteristics and design elements. A premium offer for the discerning collector investor of the best of British coinage.
