Description:

Rarely Seen Select Proof
Gold 1925 Norse Medal
1925 Medal Norse Gold Medal PR63 PCGS. CAC. Only 100 examples of the rare gold Norse medals were struck. 53 of those were melted, which leads to a net mintage of 47 pieces. Widely collected with the classic (pre-1955) commemorative series, the Norse medal is interesting for its octagonal shape and matte finish. The Leif Ericson-era motifs conflict with the celebrated anniversary of the arrival of Scandinavian immigrants on the sloop Restaurationen in New York on October 9, 1825. The thick and thin variants of the silver version are relatively plentiful, but gold Norse medals seldom emerge. In fact, the last prior Heritage Signature appearance was more than three years ago. This is a well struck representative with pleasing preservation, kept from a higher grade only by a graze above the Viking's sword. (PCGS# 9452)
