The newest monthly world coin auction from Heritage Auctions is the José Rodrigues Collection of Victoria Sovereigns, now open for bidding with the live session scheduled for December 29. These sovereigns form a part of the José Rodrigues Collection, a collection that features the NGC #1 set of circulation strike Great Britain sovereigns (1838-1901), as well as the #2 set of circulation strike Australian sovereigns (1856-1901). Rounding out the offering is a handful of half sovereigns and a 1 Pond coin from South Africa.
The highlight of this auction is the 1879 sovereign from Great Britain, at NGC MS61 not only the finest certified example of this low-mintage date, but the only such coin to have been certified in any mint state grade. The Australian offerings are led by an 1887-M Young Head/Shield type sovereign, at MS62 the finest example of this rare date we have had the pleasure to offer.
