NGC - One of the highest-graded examples of a British coinage masterpiece roared in the Taisei Coins auction.
A famous British rarity certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) realized 99,475,000 Yen (about $930,000 USD) including the buyer's premium in a Taisei Coins auction. The 1839 Victoria "Una and the Lion" Gold Five Pounds graded NGC PF 65 Ultra Cameo was the star of the sale that concluded May 3, 2020.
The incredible $930,000 sum is $470,000 higher than the price this exact coin realized when it was sold at auction less than three years ago. In that sale, it realized £340,000 (about $460,000 USD).
