    German Colonial gold 10 Marks 1895A, Bird of Paradise/Date and value in palm wreath, Fr-2, KM8, MS66 NGC. Sharply struck and lustrous with no mentionable flaws. A superb example of this extremely popular issue, often thought to have the most beautiful of all modern coin designs. Mintage of only 2,000 pieces, with only a tiny number surviving the turbulent times that swept this large island from 1905-1914. The 20 Mark piece has a smaller mintage of only 1,500 pieces, but it seems to appear much more frequently than the 10 Mark. A rare opportunity to acquire one of the truly classic world gold coins.
