Queen Victoria was born in May 1819, the sole legitimate child of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent – fourth son of King George III. As her father died in 1820, and his three elder brothers died childless, the throne fell to Victoria in June 1837. In 1887, Victoria became one of very few British monarchs to reign for 50 years, and great celebrations were held to mark the event.
Created by Joseph Edgar Boehm, and employed upon the 1887 Golden Jubilee Medal, what is now known as the Jubilee Portrait was introduced to British coinage in 1887. Boehm’s distinctive, controversial portrait was used in the striking of sovereigns from 1887 until 1893, and coins from this short-lived series are highly sought after – particularly when found in mint-state quality.
Struck at the Melbourne Mint exactly 100 years after European settlement of Australia, the delightful 1888M Jubilee Sovereign before you has been graded by NGC at MS62 – the equivalent of Uncirculated condition.
