Victoria Young Head 1871 - 1887

Our specific year Victoria Young Head coins are selected from only the finest condition coins in our stocks and will be significantly higher in grade compared to our Specific Head sovereigns.  We aim for a coin grade of VF+ (very fine and above).  Exceptional or rare coins will be listed with the photograph of the actual coin rather than a generic picture.
