ITALY, VENICE 1414-23 DUCAT GOLD COIN “FINEST KNOWN” we know of! JESUS - BOOK OF GOSPELS ~ NGC 66 ~
We’ve handled several Gold Ducats in Uncirculated condition, we even have a GEM 65 listed currently, but we’ve Never Seen a Gold Ducat graded this high!!! Perhaps the most striking feature of this piece is the color of the gold, obviously attributing to it’s high karat content – it radiates a deep, at the same time, bright luster. The details are very Crisp and clear, both the Vignette and the Legends! Very Rarely seen is such a strongly struck and clear display of JESUS’ features, his Face, Beard and Crown! Also, his hand (holding the Book of Gospels) is also very detailed. Truly and all around Trophy Piece!!!
