    British Colony. Victoria bronzed Proof Pattern Mule Cent 1862 PR63 Brown PCGS, KM-Pn34, Prid-290. Obv: ONE CENT inside wreath with HONG - KONG, crossed hammer and lion privy marks at outer legend. Rev: Four Chinese characters around central circle that read: HSIANG CHIANG I HSIEN. Very rare as a pattern issue and possessing exemplary eye-appeal, with highly reflective surfaces that are uniformly sharp and feature scintillating green-blue patina in the open fields and rich fuchsia and orange color that clings to the raised surfaces. The only example of this type we have seen offered at public auction in a least a decade, with an example cataloged as this type by Stack's Bowers in 2015 (but actually being Prid-291 of presumably similar rarity) bringing $11,000 hammer.

    1862年香港一仙精製銅質試鑄樣幣。PR63 Brown PCGS, 香港開埠之初,皆採用英國貨幣。後來,香港政府為更有效規管通貨,於1862年宣佈香港將採用銀本位貨幣制度。正因如此,此系列即作為香港首次發行官鑄貨幣之前的試鑄樣幣,未經流通。正面設計精美的花圈被英文字母ONE CENT與HONG KONG環繞,外圍有英式象徵的細小交叉錘子和獅子。背面中心則鑄有"香港一仙"的中文字母。此枚具有銳利的高度反光表面,底光具有閃爍的銅綠色包漿,浮雕部分依附著豐富的紫紅色色調,賞心悅目。根據過往的記錄,另一款罕見度相近的 Prid-291 則曾於2015年拍賣過,當時的落槌價為$11,000美元。此枚為我們首次同時也是近十年內經手過的最佳例子。非常精美,典型英式設計,相當珍罕的樣幣品種。此幣堪稱完美,論其珍罕程度,足以值得藏家熱烈競投,實在不容錯過。
