    Description

    Victoria gold Proof Maundy 3 Pence 1838 PR64 NGC, W&R-382 (for set. R6). A fantastically rare off-metal presentation strike in gold, one of likely fewer than 5-10 to exist, and exceptionally well-preserved. After Victoria's ascent to the throne in 1837 her coinage production began, heralding much experimentation and the production of several patterns and Proofs amongst the rarest and most elite of which was the 1838 gold Proof Maundy set. Recent years have seen the offering of the Maundy Penny and Fourpence, but a gold Threepence has seemingly not been offered since 1994. Accordingly, if some elite collector out there is building the entire gold set, this is your chance to be three-quarters complete! The young Queen's portrait is exquisitely frosted on this delicate specimen, the fields behind totally free of contact marks or blemishes; the flan is somewhat irregular, an intriguing element for what was clearly designed to be a VIP presentation piece. The reverse exhibits strong die-polish lines, as well as spots of deep red tone. An absolute rarity and gorgeous to behold, a once-in-a-generation offering, and worthy of the finest cabinets of British gold Proofs.
