01-Dec (USAGOLD) — When we received the lot of Italian 20 Lira gold coins that comprised our November Special offer, we found a small stack of Kingdom of Sardinia 20 Lira coins mixed in. All predating 1860, these coins are exceedingly scarce, and are the first of their kind we have ever had the pleasure of holding.
The twenty Sardinian coins we made available as part of the special quickly sold out, but we saved the oldest and rarest — a nearly uncirculated 1827 Charles Felix (image of actual coin pictured above) — to raffle off to one lucky client that participated in the special. NGC Price Guide places a retail value on an uncirculated version of this coin at a whopping $1850!
The winning ticket drawn was 35466Q.
Congratulations to T.M. of Colorado!
