1847年柬埔寨3提卡銀幣合金樣幣。令人印象深刻且大规格的白金发行，版式罕见，歷史意义浓厚，设计令人惊叹的一枚。安东 (19世纪柬埔寨王) 意图在柬埔寨推行西化，发行的货币自然成為蓝图的其中一部分。国王与英国伯明翰的 W. P. Hammond 公司签订合同，生產新的机器铸造模型，并為柬埔寨提供现代铸币设备。 1852 年，一位当地的工匠製作了新提案货币的象牙模型，这些模型被送往伯明翰，用於生產这些白金试铸样币。当机器运送至柬埔寨政府时，无人具备安装机器的技术知识。儘管已有模具，但一直被搁置，直至一位对铸币设备有所了解的泰国人将其转换為手动压机方才启用。样币铸打精良，细节纤毫毕现，底板柔美光泽闪现。带些碰痕，但无碍整体品相。存世作中的佼佼者，拍场上呈献更是凤毛麟角，资深藏家完善集藏的必然之选。
CAMBODIA. White Metal 3 Tical Pattern, CS 1208 (1847). Birmingham (W. P. Hammond & Company) Mint. Ang Duong. NGC MS-63.KM-Pn2; Fonrobert-2159. An impressive and hulking pattern issue in white metal, this amazing specimen delivers a RARE combination of impressive historical importance and beautiful design. King Ang Duong sought to westernize Cambodia and coinage natural fell into this aspiration. The king contracted with W. P. Hammond and Company in Birmingham, England to produce new machine struck patterns and supply the country with modern minting equipment. In 1852 a local artisan produced ivory mock-ups of the proposed coinage that were sent to Birmingham, which were used to produce these trial strikes in white metal. When the machine was supplied to the Cambodian government, no one had the technical knowledge to set the machinery up. It therefore sat unused, despite being supplied with dies, until it was converted into a hand press by a Thai man who had some knowledge of minting equipment. This Pattern is exactingly struck, with a precise amount of detail being imbued on the flan, and some gentle reflectivity even peering through in the fields. A few hits are noted for completeness, though there is very little to technically fault this piece on. A tremendous survivor, and one that should see no shortage of advanced bidders seeking to add a specimen to their collection, as these types only appear with astonishing infrequency.Ex: Irving Goodman Collection.
