About this set: The Spencer Collection of George IV Type Gold won the Best British Set of the Year in 2006. The five pound proof of 1826 is quite scarce as only 150 were minted, making this date proof much scarcer than the famous 1839 Victoria Una and the Lion 5 pound proof. The Collection also includes a Pattern Mule Half Sovereign, dual dated 1829 / 1823. George IV Bare Head, Reeded Edge, WR-253. The obverse is dated 1829, paired with an 1823 dated reverse of the style used for WR-245: Crowned garnished shield and the legend "ANNO 1823" at sides. A most important and unusual coin, and of special allure because no regular-dies 1829 half sovereign was ever struck. A great rarity, R7: only 2 known, the other impounded in the Royal Mint Collection, thus unique in private hands. Ex Terner, Graded PCGS Proof 63 Cameo.
