Peck-1993 variety, Victoria type.  Called ‘Extremely Rare’ in Peck.

An interesting and beautifully executed proof pattern Decimal Penny with a youthful portrait of Queen Victoria on the obverse, and, drawing its theme from Spenser’s Faerie Queene, a depiction of the Queen as Una guiding the British lion on the reverse.

This is the only one we’ve ever seen of this type and it is a striking gem.  All original, with reflective surfaces and an ancient coppery gold, silvery blue and rose patina.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
