    Gem-Certified Stunning Proof Rarity

    German Colony. Wilhelm II gold Proof 10 Mark 1895-A PR65 NGC, Berlin mint, KM8, J-708, D&S-386. Considered one of the most iconic designs of modern coinage, the "Birds of Paradise" design employed most commonly on German New Guinea silver issues is widely recognized and praised by collectors for its imagery, perfectly fitting with perhaps somewhat fanciful notions of European colonization of faraway and exotic lands. While silver issues are scarce in better states of preservation, gold issues are exceedingly so, and to find one of these in Proof format is to find a treasure that most collectors can never hope to see in their lifetimes. This certified gem example offers a distinctive flashy brilliance, undiminished by any noteworthy distractions, highlighting the razor sharpness of the strike and confirming the exceptional quality at every turn. An item of great numismatic importance and a clear highlight of this diverse auction.
