    Victoria Pattern "Centum" 1848, ESC 911 (noted incorrectly as ESC 909 on the holder), PF64 NGC. Obverse, large laureate head of queen l. Reverse, oak wreath and trident, ONE CENTUM-100 MILLES-ONE TENTH OF A POUND. This is one of the twenty-seven Patterns that William Wyon that were produced for the proposed new coinage of a Florin that would allow for an easier fit with the European mainland coinage. The beautiful portrait of Victoria would fit very easily into the style of the Art Nouveau period that was soon to come. There is a comeliness to this portrait that the classic Gothic portrait can't quite compare to. It has a plain edge with a medal die axis. It is moderately toned with hints of blue, yellow and green.
    From the Dr. Patrick Tan Collection.
