    Description

    Charles II gold "Elephant & Castle" 5 Guineas 1682 XF40 NGC, Royal mint, KM444.2, S-3332. 2nd laureate bust, T. QVARTO edge. A handsome representative of this massive gold issue, ever-desirable with the inclusion of the Elephant and Castle badge of the Africa Company, confirming the source of the gold as Guinea from which the denomination got its name. Circulation has blunted some of the high-point details and left a peppering of minuscule contact marks throughout the fields, none of which are individually noteworthy. Fiercely contested at auction in any grade, if ever there was an opportunity for the quality-minded type collector to procure a problem-free example of this type or date, this may be it for some time to come.

    Estimate: $12,000 - $18,000.
