Darker tone, a little patchy in places, otherwise practically as struck, extremely rare, has been graded and slabbed by NGC as PF62.

NGC certification 2722100-006

The Latin obverse legend translates as "George the Fourth by the Grace of God," and on the reverse "King of the Britains, Defender of the Faith."

These "small lion" patterns carry the same obverse as the currency shilling but the reverse not only differs in the sizing of the lion but also in the large crown below it, and the wording of the legend which has more abbreviated Latin than that adopted for the currency piece.

Provenance:

Ex Baldwin Auction 44, 2nd May 2006, lot 979.
