1830 Great Britain, King George IV Shield type Sovereign in aUNC and very Rare as such. Weight 7.9881g and 0.9170 fine. Diameter 22 mm.
Up until 1604 there was a coin called the English gold sovereign and in 1816 when there was the „Great Recoinage“ the name was revived. At that time standard gold (22 carat) was valued at £46 14s 6d per troy pound; this meant a £1 coin needed to weigh 123.2744783 grains or 7.988030269 g. The weight is still the same today. The 1830 Gold Sovereign is an example of the Gold Sovereign and is one of the most ubiquitous of all coins and much sought after by both coin collectors and bullion investors. Sovereigns have been minted since 1817. Coin minted at Royal Mint and designed by Benedetto Pistrucci (29 May 1783 to 16 September 1855), an Italian engraver who became chief medallist at the Royal Mint. 6,000 AUD.

Coin minted in Rome. The aureus (pl. aurei, “golden”) was a gold coin of ancient Rome originally valued at 25 pure silver denarii. The aureus was regularly issued from the 1st century BC to the beginning of the 4th century AD, when it was replaced by the solidus. The aureus was about the same size as the denarius, but heavier due to the higher density of gold. Vespasian: Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus; 17 November AD 9 to 23 June AD 79) was Roman Emperor from AD 69 to AD 79, the fourth, and last, in the year of the four Emperors.

1826 Great Britain King George IVth, Crown (5 Shillings) Septimo Rare. Nice light even grey tone. Only 150 pieces were struck that year and all as proofs. They were not designated for circulation only as gifts to dignitaries or to collectors. Unfortunately some did slip into circulation and from time to time we can see some of this crowns with some wear. This crown is one of them. Still coin is extremely scarce if not rare and very attractive design which make this crown one of the best coins in British coinage. MM Rare Coins saw this crowns in perfect condition selling for above 22,000 Pounds. Catalog reference KM#699, diameter 37.94 mm. , weight 28.276g. , 0.925 fine. Impaired proof. 6,500 AUD.
