Christian X gold Specimen 20 Kroner 1930 (h)-N SP69 PCGS
, Copenhagen mint, KM817.3 (unlisted in Proof), Hede-1C, Sieg-3.3. What can be said about this coin beyond what can be summed up in only two words? Simply incredible. One will often hear collectors marveling about high-quality coins, usually when certified "67" and higher, as being "essentially as-struck", and for practical purposes this is true. This offering, however, goes beyond this accepted definition, unveiling surfaces that truly are preserved in virtually the same condition in which they were made. Thus, this immaculate and nearly unbelievable jewel offers an unfathomable degree of technical quality, not just for the type, but for all world coinage struck before the second half of the 20th century, representing a miraculous survivor and a paragon of pre-WWII numismatics.
This coin is struck in what is best described as a semi-matte finish, a finely speckled texture gracing the entirety of the obverse and reverse surfaces, presenting a luxurious appearance that is undiminished by a single meaningful instance of contact or handling. Truly sublime, this representative is quite literally a unique chance for the collector who desires the absolute best quality in Danish coinage. From the Caranett Collection.Read More: Country of the Day Series Check out coins from Denmark on ebay
