Moscow-based auction house Rare Coins has put together their largest auction so far with exactly 1,000 lots mostly from Russia including numismatic books and catalogues. Two out of three of the submitted lots are of the highest collectible quality: MS (Uncirculated) and Proof.
Roma Numismatics features a selection of coinage from the Hermann Lanz collection with excellent pedigrees, some very rare examples of Etruscan coinage, Roman coins with distinguished provenance, and mint state Basil I solidus from the Byzantine section.
The auction focuses on Saxony and Regensburg, both with many rarities and superb conditions. Other prominent items are rare medals from 17 c. Gdansk, and two remarkable coins of Augsburg mentioning the emperor Karl VI.
CNG’s online auction features 900 lots with the final offerings from the Michel Prieur Collection. Roman aurei from the Alpine Collection, and British copper and bronze coins from the Brondesbury Park Collection round out this auction.
An early Umayyad gold dinar dated 105h (723AD) from the ‘Mine of the Commander of the Faithful’ is the second specimen ever to be offered at public auction. Estimated at £1.4-1.6 million this is the highest estimate for any lot previously offered for sale by the auction house.
SINCONA will be offering rarities, unique specimens, and items in excellent conditions. The focus is on Russia, Switzerland, and banknotes. One of the highlights is the Werner Pfister Collection with Swiss Confederate coins in magnificent conditions.
CNG’s online auction features 949 lots, many of them from significant collections, including the Baldwin Maull Collection, and the Johnson Family Collection, and a specialized group of Roman Republican coins from the Andrew McCabe Collection.
