Great Britain 1825 Proof Half Sovereign PCGS PR64CAM

The 1826 proof coins are one of the earliest commercial proofs issued by the Royal Mint. In preparation for such a momentous event, the mint struck patterns the year before, all dated 1825. These patterns are rare, and are often mishandled, hairlined, or otherwise impaired.

The present coin, an 1825 half sovereign, is superior to most examples that have appeared on the market in recent years. It is just one of five coins graded by PCGS and the single-finest cameo example graded by them. With good colouring and superior eye appeal, the coin makes an ideal addition to a portfolio of important gold rarities or British proof coins. 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.

All coins are subject to prior sale on our website.
