Description Victoria Pattern "Royal Cypher" Florin 1848, ESC-899 (R2), plain edge, PR65 NGC. A truly beautiful example of this pattern featuring Victoria's Laurel Bust combined with the cypher reverse using the legend ONE CENTUM. Young Victoria's portrait shimmers with frost and the surrounding field is pristine. On the reverse, William Wyon's intricately engraved die featuring an intertwined "VR" cypher (for Victoria Regina) has transferred every tiny detail to the coin. Gorgeous light silvery blue iridescence, with golden tinges, highlights the beauty of this majestic coin. Among the finest we have seen. Realized $9,693.75.
