    Exceptional William IV Proof Double Sovereign

    William IV gold Proof 2 Pounds 1831 PR65+★ Ultra Cameo NGC, KM718, S-3828, W&R-258 (R3). An absolutely gorgeous Proof, the finest 1831 2 Pounds as graded by NGC or PCGS; one other PR65+ has been certified by PCGS, but the present offering boasts the coveted 'star' grade for exceptional eye appeal. It is clear to see how it has received such accolade, its devices luxuriously frosted in contrast to the pristine mirror fields behind, one minute production flaw to the left of the portrait the sole mark of note, the planchet colored a vibrant sun-yellow. We have never offered a piece in this grade level; the previous finest we handled was graded PR64+ Deep Cameo and realized $37,200 in our April 2019 auction. Essentially the largest denomination collectors can hope to obtain for this monarch, the largest produced as part of William's 1831 coronation Proof set, and in an unmatchable state of preservation.
