    Possibly Unique Alvise Mocenigo IV 8 Zecchini

    Venice. Alvise Mocenigo IV gold Ducato of 8 Zecchini ND (1763-1778)-GMB AU55 NGC, cf. KM672 (same denomination, different design), Fr-1420 var. (same), CNI-VIIIb.35 (possibly this coin), Paolucci-139.17, Bellesia-365 (same). 27.77gm. Giustiniano Maria Badoer as mintmaster. Struck in gold from dies employed in the striking of the Ducato issues of the same Doge (cf. KM663), and the only example of this type of which we are aware, similarly described by the consignor as "unique." Those closely familiar with the Ducato series would find themselves hard-pressed to not be awed by the present offering, whose golden luster survives intact across the entirety of the obverse and reverse faces, embellishing design motifs that are raised in clear profile, excepting only minor areas of softness. Very nearly uncirculated, with only trivial highpoint rub, and designated as such by NGC. The Corpus Nummorum Italicorum interestingly lists the type, unlike most references, in a near-identical weight to that of this example (27.78gm vs 27.77gm), introducing the distinct possibility that the listing may in fact be based on this very coin. All stated, a singular opportunity for the advanced collector of the Venetian or, more broadly, Italian series.
