Belgium 1930 10 francs rev Goldberg 69-4548.jpg

This specimen was lot 4548 in Goldberg sale 69 (Los Angeles, May, 2012), where it did not sell. The catalog description[2] noted, "Belgium. 10 Francs, 1930. Dutch, BELGIE. Conjoined heads of Leopold I and Leopold II. NGC graded MS-62. The Judy Cahn Collection." It was offered again in Goldberg sale 70 (Los Angeles, September 2012), where it sold for $207. This type comes with a French reverse (KM 99) and the Dutch reverse shown here. Despite a substantial mintage, the coin is scarce. Perhaps the Germans seized and melted them during the Nazi occupation. King Albert was kiiled in a climbing accident in 1934.

Recorded mintage: 3,000,000.

Specification: nickel.

Catalog reference: KM-100, Dav-55.
