    Gem Mint State 1893 5 Pounds

    Victoria gold Proof 5 Pounds 1893 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC, KM787, S-3872. Just 773 of this final portrait type were issued in Proof, the highest denomination in the 1893 Proof set introduced to celebrate Thomas Brock's new 'widow head' portrait of Victoria, in use until her death in 1901. Amongst the most popular of all of Victoria's coins, examples of this specially-made high denomination are avidly collected in any preservation - and when offered in gem, they attract exceptionally strong attention from the many grade-conscious collectors of British gold. The present piece is visually outstanding, its color rich honey gold with a beautiful copper tone at the peripheries, Victoria's Ultra Cameo portrait pristinely frosted and bearing absolutely no hint of contact whatsoever. An altogether immense offering, deserving of a place in a top-tier collection.
