    Description

    Victoria gold "Shield" Sovereign 1880-M AU58 NGC, Melbourne mint, KM6. The highest grade level for this type at NGC, a notable rarity of the Australian Sovereign series and hardly ever offered in this impressive a preservation. Exhibiting a pristine strike with spiraling cartwheel luster, eye-catching lemon-and-honey color, a hair's breadth from Mint State with only the most minor surface rub holding this piece back from an even loftier certification. The most recent example of this type we offered was graded AU53 and realized $2,640 in our January 2019 sale; this far finer piece is sure to elicit a much stronger response from bidders.
