1893 Restrike QUEEN VICTORIA Veiled Head Gold Clad £5 Coin
Restrike of the coin that was Struck at the Royal Mint in London nearly 125 years ago, the 1893 Veiled Head Gold £5 was issued to coincide with the introduction of what was to be the final coinage portrait of the long-reigning Queen Victoria. Perhaps the finest portrait of her reign, the distinguished Veiled Head effigy is beautifully accommodated by the imposing 36.02mm diameter flan of this unique type. A commanding coin, the reverse is graced with the timeless beauty of Benedetto Pistrucci’s St George & the Dragon motif.
QUEEN VICTORIA Head Gold Clad £5 Coin is very collective Coin because it is very beautiful nice item.
Importantly, for the purposes of collectors, this one-year-only type was one of only three British Gold £5 types created specifically as circulation coins. Not only is this type difficult to find in better grade as a consequence, but a huge if unknown number have fallen victim to the melting pot.
