The most complete sovereigns sale

30 April 2012Written by ATG Reporter

BALDWIN’S are to sell the most complete collection of British gold sovereigns, formed over 34 years, with the first tranche being offered on May 8 in London.

The 380-lot sale of the Bentley Collection Part One will consist of sovereigns from the Royal Mint when it was based in London, dating from George III to the present reign. The sale will include at least one example of every single date issued for currency in the UK, as well as many pattern and proof issues.

The extremely rare 1819 sovereign, billed as the finest known specimen in private hands, will be offered for sale in Part Three of the collection, in May 2013.
