Fantasy Great Britain INA Retro Crown PCGS PR68RD CAM
The auction company Spink & Sons commissioned numerous fantasy coins to bring to life new designs or combinations of designs for which no official mint issue ever existed. These were produced by INA Limited of Birmingham and auctioned by Spink in July 2001. Many of these incorporate designs similar to official mint issues in a quality that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive. The most attractive designs in cameo proof are now highly sought after.
This "1879" dated crown is one of those fantasy coins issued circa 2001. It features a depiction of Queen Victoria by Donald Golder on the obverse and crowned arms on the reverse. This design is a similar, but reimagined form of the official early crowns of Queen Victoria.
As of this writing, the PCGS population report identifies this example as being tied for highest graded.
