Victoria 1841 Sovereign, unbarred As in GRATIA, rarest London date for reign

Victoria (1837-1901), gold Sovereign, 1841, first young filleted head left, W.W. raised on truncation for engraver William Wyon, date below, Latin legend and toothed border surrounding, legend with unbarred As in last word, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA, rev. crowned quartered shield of arms within laurel wreath, emblems below, Latin legend and toothed border surrounding, BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID: DEF:, weight 7.94g (Bentley 970; Bull EGC 1060; MCE 501; Marsh 24A R3; S.3852). Toned with light surface marks both sides, good fine and very rare.

Calendar Year Mintage 124,054.

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "Victoria by the Grace of God," and on the reverse "Queen of the Britain's, Defender of the Faith."

With the smallest annual calendar year mintage for any of the dates of the Victorian gold Sovereigns, 1841 is by far the hardest to find, and even then there is variety as the word GRATIA exists with either normal As or unbarred as we have demonstrated herewith.
