Struck by the Prussian Imperial Mint from 1872 to 1873, this superbly crafted gold piece features a sculpted portrait of Wilhelm I, King of Prussia and the first German Emperor. On the reverse is a magnificently engraved German Eagle royal crest.
The same impressive engravings were used on the 20 mark of the period, but far fewer of these 10 mark issues were minted making it a much tougher find today for collectors. These coins circulated when gold was the basic standard of coinage and they circulated heavily in commerce.
Very few of the remaining issue survive in this extraordinary gorgeous MS-66 quality. These historic 10 mark gold pieces, now all over 100 years old, feature superlative surfaces with virtually no trace of wear. Each is consensus grade certified by NCG and housed in a protective slab which showcase both sides of the beautiful coin.
