1887 Victoria Gold 5 Pounds MS64

Royal mint, KM769, S-3864. The ever-popular Jubilee portrait of Queen Victoria takes center stage on this fully lustrous offering that could easily add the "Prooflike" moniker to its accolades. Unlike the last several examples that we've handled, this massive selection retrains its glorious citrus-gold coloring, while the central fields remain untouched in a sense, showing only trace evidence of handling that is usually reserved for finer designations. The frosted images across both sides have benefitted from a superior strike, which produces a subtle contrast of texture in comparison with the glowing recesses. An all around jewel once in hand, and likely to engage even the most discerning enthusiasts of this issue. Very Rare in this condition.
