1736 Great Britain Jenergan's Lottery Medal Ngc Au-50 Very Rare:
1736 GREAT BRITAIN JENERGAN'S LOTTERY MEDAL NGC AU-50 VERY RARE!!!Low start! !
RUSSIKA. This is a very scarce and interesting medal that was used as a lottery ticket to win a massive silver cistern (wine cooler) holding 60 gallons and weighing 1/4 ton. Jernegan, the owner of the cistern, was not paid for it and sued without success so he held a lottery to recoup his losses. However, not enough tickets for the lottery were sold. A state lottery then offered the cistern as a first prize to fund the rebuilding ofLondon'sWestminster Bridge and this lottery was won by a farmer from Dorset. The cistern eventually turned up in Russia in the collection of Katherine the Great. I saw the cistern myself in a museum in Russia and it was huge, solid silver, and quite beautiful!
