Great Britain 1825 Laurette Head Sovereign PCGS MS63
While all sovereigns are popular, the earliest sovereign issues from Tower Hill have been of particular interest to collectors. The 1825 Laureate sovereign of George IV has not been immune to this interest, with prices rising across the board, even for lower grades. Higher-grade and investment quality coins have been very specifically sought after, as the grading services have graded so few. Indeed, PCGS and NGC have certified just twenty-one examples finer than MS61 (1/24), which is far from enough to satisfy demand from collectors and investors.

From a collectability perspective, the 1825 is the second-rarest date of the Laureate type (after the exceedingly rare 1823) and the third rarest across the entire George IV series. The present coin is one of the nicest examples we've handled, with a sharp strike, clear fields, and subdued and original lustre. Equal-second finest graded by PCGS. Drake Sterling Numismatics was established 2007, and specialises in quality PCGS-graded Australian gold coins, silver coins, and copper coins, including Colonial coins, Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns, Commonwealth coins, and pre-decimal proof coins.
