Description

William III (1694-1702), Crown, 1700, third laureate and draped bust variety right, long thin tie ends, toothed border surrounding both sides, legend reads GVLIELMVS III DEI GRA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, angles plain, Lion of Nassau struck at centre, nine strings (two strings almost conjoined as one) to Irish third harp, date flanking top crown, reads MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX. Edge inscription +DECVS ET TVTAMEN ANNO REGNI DVODECIMO (S.3474; ESC. 97; Bull 1010).

Lustrous and attractive in tone and strike. Exceptional portrait and detail, reverse equally impressive with underlying amber mint bloom, a touch of flecking. Almost as struck, rare so well preserved.
