This week's preview for the August 2018 Hong Kong Showcase Auction is from the highly collectible Unicorn series.

The obverse depicts the western unicorn, which is classically represented as a pure white horse with a distinctive spiraling horn on its forehead and the beard of a goat, typically representing purity and grace in western culture.​​

Offered in lot 1443 of our June 2018 Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Summer Expo is a gorgeous 1854 Liberty Seated silver dollar certified AU-58 by PCGS and awarded a green sticker by CAC. It is truly exceptional, with lilac-gray surfaces that display scattered traces of olive and tobacco patina. The toning is complemented by substantial traces of pearlescent mint luster in the fields and protected regions. The strike is sharp and there are not distracting blemishes. It is an attractive example that approaches Mint State preservation in many respects.​​
