Hello there. Welcome to The Coin Cabinet YouTube channel. My name is Andreas Afeldt and today we're going to do another comparison video. I have a bunch of pre-Victorian gold sovereigns and we're going to let you look at them and guess the grade.

First of all, we have a George IV gold sovereign from 1822. This is quite an attractive piece. There is a little bit of wear, I think you can see it on the hair, on the olive wreath, just like a slight wear on both sides. Yeah, so I'm going to send all of these coins to NGC.

The second type of coin I have with me today, it's the George IV second type bear head, gold sovereign. And they are both dated 1830, it's the last date of George IV reign, and they are both quite attractive pieces and you can look for yourself. The first one has nice lustre, has a little bit of a ding on the reverse, but yeah, it's still a good coin.

The second one is perhaps a little bit better in my opinion. I'm going to try to remove my fingers so you can see the rim. It's got some nice lustre on the reverse. Yeah, so that's the second type. And then I have another type. It's the third type. It is a George IV. Yeah, there you go. You see that? What do you think? It's for you to leave a comment in the comments section below.

So now you've seen the coins. Have a good think about it. Review the coins again if you need to by watching the video again and leave your guesses in the comments section below. I'll look forward to get your guesses and see who can get all five coins right.

Thanks for watching. We'll make more videos like this, guess the grade, and be sure to hop on our website, www.thecoincabinet.co.uk or www.thecoincabinet.com and check out what we have in stock. We have lots of sovereigns like this. And we'll look forward to seeing you again soon.
