Description:
1839 Victoria Proof Half Sovereign

A Stunningly Contrasted Cameo
Victoria gold Proof Half Sovereign 1839, S-3859, WR-343, KM735.1, PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. Young Head, plain edge. A splendid example of the specimen made for the Coronation proof sets of this year. This boldly detailed coin is quite charming, with its heavy cameo portrait, orange-peel gold texture, and sparkling reflective luster. While not a rare coin per se, the proof half sovereign of 1839 is generally found in somewhat mishandled condition as a result of its traditional storage in the plush presentation case. Coins tended to roll around and come in contact with others in the set; they were frequently touched and sometimes cleaned. A dazzling proof like this piece is truly exceptional and is a Victorian numismatic prize.
