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,

 

Clive.

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!...
