DescriptionVictoria 50 Cents 1894 UNC Detail (Cleaned) PCGS, London mint, KM6. A highly coveted issue from a miserly mintage of just 29,036 pieces, almost entirely unrepresented in UNC. Indeed, most examples which surface at auction have been heavily circulated and typically reside at around the G-VF level, rendering this UNC Detail piece an extreme conditional rarity. Despite its cleaning it is still a clear outlier for this immensely popular type, with needle-sharp detail across the planchet illuminated by hints of underlying luster. For the dedicated collector of Canadian rarities the 1894 50 Cents is a must-have, and this offering likely represents one of the finest available.
