This coin has quality traits that are clearly visible to the naked eye. An almost cameo-perfect half sovereign, immaculately struck, highly detailed with sharp edges.
On an historical note, the year 1891 heralded in a new era of coin design on Australia’s gold coinage: the Queen Victoria Jubilee Head.
That it was formerly owned by Queensland collector, Tom Hadley, comes as no surprise. He loved gold coins and he only ever wanted the very best quality. And this coin is one of the very best.
