Welcome to Smalls Sale 267 It has been quite a few years since we have been able to offer a Great Britain Queen Victoria 1893 Jubilee Gold £5. Although over 20,000 were struck for circulation, they don’t hit the market often. The example in our sale is one of the better ones we have handled. We expect it to grade MS60-61, so it isn’t in pristine condition, but it is well above those currently on the market at a similar price. Its little brother, a Great Britain Queen Victoria 1893 Jubilee Gold £2, is also in the sale. We think it is likely to go into an MS63 holder, a very good grade for this coin. Also in the sale is a strong selection of commemorative medals, highlighted by a copper strike of the 'Resolution & Adventure' medal. This medal tests as pure copper, which is typical of the Soho Mint, and is struck on the same uncracked die used to produce the silver medals and presumably the two gold medals struck for Sir Joseph Banks and King George III. There are only 2-3 known copper medals, which were more than likely ‘trial’ strikes for the silver and gold medals. Of course, you can never own a gold medal, but you can own a medal just as rare. Another highlight of the sale is a miniature naval cannon in silver, presented to Australian Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies by the Maltese Government while he was en route to the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference in London. This was once owned by Trevor Kennedy, whose unparalleled Australiana collection was thought significant enough to be purchased by the National Museum in Canberra a few years back. As usual, we have a diverse offering of jewellery, coins, banknotes, and other collectibles to sate your appetite. Smalls Auctions
