Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


In dispare, I come to you all and ask for your help. I have found, in my father's collection, a coin described as follow:


Mini coin... made of gold.


Obv... I'M OF SOVGN:... L:CHK:LAUEK... with a crowned Queen Victoria

Rev... St. George slaying the dragon... 1887


I understand that this coin might have been made of an actual sovereign, but I cannot find any further information about the coin... Could, please, someone shed soe light on this mystery...


Your help would be much appreciated.


Thank you.

I'm pretty certain that this is not a gold coin, neither is it a sovereign. It looks like an imitation of an 1887 Sovereign, some sort of token.


Sorry that this is not the answer you were looking for.


Kindest Regards,

Lauer was German and made toy / imitation coins.

There is a collectors market for them but they are only worth a few pence each.

Well it's a sovereign ?? ... what size, weight??


**Snickers** now I have just looked at the photos. Some pretty wicked craftsmanship there! to think the engravers of the Royal Mint could've produced that huahahaha!...




Just realised I have one of these on my watch list today
