    Impressive William IV Gold 2 Mohurs

    British India. William IV gold Proof Restrike 2 Mohurs 1835-(c) PR61 NGC, Calcutta mint, KM452.1, Prid-3, S&W-1.4. An ever popular restrike of this large gold Indian issue, immediately capturing the viewer's attention through its dazzling mirror fields and finely detailed engraving detail. High-point rub and hairlines define the grade, yet prove inconsequential in the visual allure this coin commands, and indeed most Proof restrikes of this type show similar handling marks; the iconic reverse design of the lion and palm remains particularly sharp and unaffected by contact. The last PR61 specimen of this immense denomination we handled realized $26,400 in our January 2018 auction, and collector interest has only grown since. One of the jewels of the British India numismatic series.

    Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000.
