    Important and Choice Finnish Rarity

    Russian Duchy. Nicholas II gold 20 Markkaa 1912-L MS63 NGC, Helsinki mint, KM9.2. A very rare variety of this date carrying the letter "L" for Johan Conrad Lihr, mintmaster. Significantly rarer than "S" marked coins, which by comparison are considered common in even higher grades. The offering displays sharp visual appeal, the strike firmly placed and the surfaces beaming radiantly with golden luster. A scarce opportunity to own an example of this Finnish rarity, whose currently certified population is only a minute fraction of its identically-dated 1912-S counterpart.

    Note for clients in the European Union: This lot is considered by the European Union to be “investment gold”. We believe that it meets the criteria established in Article 344(1), point (2) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC and thus should be exempt from import VAT regardless of the selling price. Any questions or concerns about VAT should be addressed to your accountant or local tax authority.
