GB G106-1756r.jpg

This specimen was lot 1756 in Goldberg sale 106 (Los Angeles, September 2018), where it sold for $1,680. The catalog description[1] noted, "Great Britain. 5 Pounds, 2002. Queen on horse. Choice Brilliant Proof." The catalog listing, specification and mintages reported below are complicated by the multiple formats of issue: copper-nickel (KM 1024), silver (KM 1024a) and gold (KM 1024b). We have noted here the mintages given in the SCWC altho they do not coincide with Seaby[2]. This NCLT honors the 50th anniversary of queen Elizabeth's reign.
