    British India. East India Company gold Proof "Haileybury College" Prize Medal ND (1809) PR61 Cameo NGC, Soho mint, Pudd-948.1.1. 52.54gm. By C.H. Küchler. Obv. Arms of the East India Company. Rev. Arabic script: "Pursuit of knowledge is better than the pursuit of gold". Impressively preserved in Mint State, especially considering its substantial size and weight, the devices and rims alluringly satiny and resulting in a stark cameo contrast against the mirrored golden fields, which for their own part reveal unmistakable reflectivity. The offering arguably represents just about the largest attainable numismatic relic of the East India Company available in a luxurious golden format, rendering it an ideal prize for the British Colonial collector.
