There is no denying that we are selective with our rare coins. This particular 1852 Adelaide Pound reflects the principles that we adhere to in the offering of material to our clients. It is a quality piece offered at a price that we believe offers value for your money. 

It is a fact that the majority of Adelaide Pounds have circulated. And because gold is a soft metal the rigours of circulation have treated the surviving examples harshly.

Not so with this coin.

Yes it has circulated but it is a beauty; a superb piece of 22 carat gold with original aged golden tone. That the coin has somehow managed to survive the last one hundred and sixty three years virtually unscathed is miraculous.

Furthermore it is well struck which is extraordinary given the factory-like conditions of the Government Assay Office and the well documented problems that occurred during the striking.

The outstanding quality attributes of this piece and the unique historical status of the Adelaide Pound ensure that this coin will always be sought after. It is a coin that you will be proud to show your family and friends.
