    Pristine Gold Proof 2 Pounds

    William IV gold Proof 2 Pounds 1831 PR64+ Deep Cameo PCGS, KM718, S-3828, W&R-258. A gorgeous piece, the highest denomination in William IV's coronation Proof set and always in considerable collector demand. Of the 48 examples of this type graded by NGC or PCGS, only four are graded higher than the present specimen, all of which are 65s, putting this superlative Proof firmly within the upper echelon of quality for the type. Intense mirror fields backlight the matte portrait of William, so textured so as to almost come to life when tilted in the light, the overall eye appeal achieved from the Proof contrast absolutely superb. Of near-unbeatable technical quality, an exceptional selection from this short-reigned monarch.

    Note for clients in the European Union: This lot is considered by the European Union to be “investment gold”.
