Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
It is practically a truism in numismatics that the collecting public is more likely to save issues of a new design than the last year of an old design. The death of Queen Victoria on January 22, 1901, after a reign of nearly 64 years--the longest in British history--brought an end to the Victoria 50 Cents series, of course, although the final-year issue was a moderate production of 80,000 coins. Considering that her death occurred so early in the year and that her subjects in England and the colonies might have thought to save examples commemorating her reign, the issue is mystifyingly scarce in Mint State, a level at which PCGS has certified only ten pieces.  Steel-grey and steel-blue toning with full underlying luster and extremely sharp details.  Supremely rare, with only three pieces certified finer by PCGS (5/17).
