    British India. Victoria gold Mohur 1885-(c) MS63 NGC, Calcutta mint, KM496, Prid-21, S&W-6.13. Among only two other like-graded examples by either grading party in this top level of certification, this bold example presents surfaces that are brimming with much original luster while Victoria's sharp portrait retains its pinpoint detailing, even throughout her intricate brocade. The reverse is essentially flawless in its delivery, with fields and devices that are evenly sheathed in a layer of satin. A coin that is continually bringing record prices at auction, and in this conditionally rare state of preservation, sure to elicit a considerable amount of interest from collectors of high-end British India material.

    Note for clients in the European Union: This lot is considered by the European Union to be “investment gold”. We believe that it meets the criteria established in Article 344(1), point (2) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC and thus should be exempt from import VAT regardless of the selling price. Any questions or concerns about VAT should be addressed to your accountant or local tax authority.
