Australia, 1872 Sydney St George Reverse Sovereign -

McD 144. One word: Wow! Although not as scarce as the key date 1872 Melbourne, the 1872 Sydney is one of those dates that just doesn’t come in UNC, so when I stumbled on this piece, in the album of a western Sydney collector, I just had to have it. The coin sticks out like a Christmas tree, and has full lustre, perfect strike, and tonnes of eye appeal. PCGS graded the coin MS62, which is the single-finest example of this date currently available to collectors. In MS62, it’s also the only 1872 Sydney St George reverse graded Mint State, a testament to its rarity in UNC. After flicking through my old Nobles catalogues, going back to November 1999, I could only find two instances of an “Uncirculated” 1872 Sydney going to auction – once in July 2001, and again in November 1999. Do the math: The coin turned up in auction twice in the thirteen years since November 1999 – that’s rare. Be quick: This coin will sell fast, and belongs in the collection of a connoisseur or type collector. VERY RARE this nice.

Grades PCGS MS62.
