Great rarities from Great Britain and Czechoslovakia are among hundreds of world coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) that are featured in a Stack’s Bowers auction. Bidding is already underway for The Summer 2022 Global Showcase Auction Session A and Session C, which will be held on August 22 and 24, 2022.
The top coin is a Great Britain 1839 Una and the Lion 5 Sovereign graded NGC PF 64 (Session C, lot 32114). Coins featuring the Una and the Lion design are treasured by collectors of British coins because of their impressive design depicting the young Queen Victoria. This beautiful example is estimated at $300,000 to $600,000.
