Help to identify if this can be slabbed

2 posts in this topic

Since I am new here but a NGC member, I have a question if this can be sent in for grading or authenticating.

I have a round gold coin with the following description:


Obverse - It has an Eagle with the wings spread, above the eagles head has U.S. Mint underneath the wings has PHILADELPHIA - U.S.A..


Reverse - Has a rectangle with the following inside:


.2354 TROY OZS.



We are not sure if this was something purchased from the Philadelphia mint as a visitor.


Is this something known as a token/commerative?


Thank you for taking the time in answering or guiding me in the right direction.

Thanks for your question. I believe you are describing a (1947) Saudi Arabia Gold Sovereign. They were struck at the Philadelphia Mint to use as oil concession payments by ARAMCO to Saudi Arabia. NGC does grade them. You can see a number of examples here at the NGC World Auction Central page
