KM – XM5.1, Cyprus, 1966 Five Pounds (Gold-0.917), Makarios III.
Mintage for business and Proof strikes combined: 1,500. A massive gold issue struck in honor of Archbishop Makarios III, with glossy, rose-tinged mirrors and artistically-styled design motifs that emit a light frost in comparison to the surrounding shimmer. Scarce and popular issue that is sought-after at the Proof level.
Grades NGC PF64 !
Definitely a coin for World Large Size Gold Collections.
