    Description

    Outstanding 5 Guineas Of William & Mary

    William & Mary 5 Guineas 1692 MS61 NGC, KM479.1, S-3422, QVARTO edge. A spectacular Mint State 5 Guineas, one of only 3 of this type to enter the MS level of certification! Exhibiting extremely little in the way of actual wear, this example has only been held back from a higher certified grade through horizontal hairlines to the obverse. Besides this, the coin is just extraordinary and essentially fully-detailed; the superb strike has boldly rendered the low-relief engraving, creating a razor sharp level of detail to both the obverse and reverse. The planchet is lemon-gold to the center, expanding outwards into a ring of lustrous orange at the peripheries giving an exquisite frame to William and Mary's crisp dual portraits. Of supreme visual appeal, this premium piece is sure to command bidder attention and find its new home amongst other excellent British pieces in an elite collection.

    Estimate: $90,000 - $120,000.
