    Charming George IV 5 Pounds

    George IV gold Proof 5 Pounds 1826 PR61 Cameo NGC, KM702, S-3797, W&R-213 (R3). Septimo raised lettered edge. William Wyon's artistic accomplishment is plainly evident here, George's depiction sensitively rendered with a pleasing contrast achieved through the juxtaposed smoothness of his cheek to the curling waves of his hair, the entirety bearing a light matte frost. The production of this piece is clearly perfect; it is only denied a higher technical grade for moderate handling and hairlines in the fields, alongside some minor edge knocks. Just 150 pieces of this large Proof-only issue were struck, resulting in their being a hotly-contested commodity amongst collectors, and we have no doubt that this offering will find its place in a premium collection of British gold.

    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.
