Extremely Rare Proof or Pattern Victoria Two Pounds with No Designer’s Initials
No. 1066685: Great Britain. Victoria. (1837-1901). 1887 AV Proof or Pattern Two Pounds. NGC PR64UCAM (Ultra Cameo). London. VICTORIA D:G: BRITT: REG: F:D:. Bust left wearing small crown and veil / St. George slaying the dragon. – Jubilee head “Pattern” Two Pounds without B.P. in exergue. Newly published research by David Iverson entitled “1887 Jubilee Head Two-Pound Pieces of Queen Victoria, A comprehensive Study” has identified the importance and rarity of the 1887 Two Pound without B.P. in exergue type as a pattern coin not previously catalogued as such. In his study, he has uncovered fascinating details and outlined the diagnostics for identifying this variety. Namely, the reverse die for these was created using the surviving master tools of the 1820 and 1823 Two Pound issues, and the 1887 Two Pound proof resulted in a slightly reduced size with the most obvious distinguishing feature being the horse’s tail on the reverse and a distinct gap between the crown and the word “BRITT” to the upper right on the obverse. Working with historical records provided by the Royal Mint, Mr. Iverson has uncovered that only a very small number of these no B.P. in exergue patterns were produced around February/March 1887. It is suggested that as few as 15-20 pieces may exist, although official mint records did not record the exact number. What is certain, the Queen herself was presented examples of these coins for final approval before production of the new Jubilee type coins began, and the Royal Mint annual report for 1886, published in May 1887, includes a plate of images of the new designs, including the Two-Pound no B.P. in exergue pattern reverse. Purchased from the Seaby Coin and Medal Bulletin, June 1982, item GG 216. NGC has noted this as “W&R 291 No Initials” on the insert. Price: $57,500.
