Description

Possibly Finest Known Fernando V and Isabel I gold Double Castellano

Fernando V and Isabel I gold Double Castellano (4 Ducats) ND (1474-1504), Seville mint, Crowned Fernando and Isabel seated on thrones, facing each other/Two shields on eagle, Calico-19, Fr-147, 9.20 gm, Choice AU-UNC. Extremely rare and one of the great rarities of Spanish numismatics. The only record we find of this type is from the January 1990 UBS Basel sale, lot 1884, where it was noted, "No more than seven specimens known. Undoubtedly the most perfect example known." It realized 100,000 Swiss Francs in that sale, or nearly $100,000 with all the buyers fees at today's exchange. It was not as nice as the example we offer here, which may be the finest of eight known pieces. This one-year type is missing from most of the great collections, and we may not again see two examples appear within a 15 year time span, as this piece and the UBS specimen.
