1879 Queen Victoria London Sovereign
A real treat for numismatists, private collectors and gold coin dealers, this exceptionally rare 1879 Queen Victoria London Sovereign is one of just 20,013 coins issued by The Royal Mint during the calendar year. It features a young head portrait of Queen Victoria on the obverse, and Benedetto Pistrucci’s original St. George & Dragon design on the reverse – complete with horse with long tail.
With WW buried in narrow truncation and the date displayed below George & Dragon, this 1879 Queen Victoria London Sovereign will make an impressive addition to any British gold coin collection. Certificate of authenticity included.
