Great Britain Victoria 1841 Gold Sovereign The Key Date PCGS XF45
GREAT BRITAIN. Victoria, 1837-1901.
Gold Sovereign, 1841. London. The Key Date. The legendary 1841 sovereign remains a gap for most collectors pursuing a date-run of shields or Victorian sovereigns. The coin on offer here boasts details and even lustre, something that's hard to come by on this date. Even if you prefer coins 'raw', ie. not in a plastic holder, this date is probably the only one to get slabbed as forgeries abound. As always on first head Victorian sovereigns, the obverse is slightly weakly struck in the centre, giving a slightly flat appearance even with the slightest wear. Having said that, the detail visible in the hair is considerable. A couple contact marks /digs around queen's cheek do not detract from the overall appearance but are mentioned for accuracy. The reverse has considerable lustre around the devices and shows quite a good strike in the harp and lower centre stem of the shield of arms. For the discerning collector of Victorian sovereigns looking to fill that gap with something more than just a filler, this is the coin to go for. In secure plastic holder, graded by PCGS XF45.
