George II, Hanover King 1727-1760

Young Bust. Plain edge. This extremely rare coin is sometimes labeled a pattern: it is the prototype of this denomination, struck first for commercial intent the following year. One of the great treasures of the Tyrant Collection.

An exquisite coin possessing a dramatic image of the second Hanoverian king, in high relief, with brightly mirrored fields and lovely pale reddish gold toning.
