MDC Monnaies de Collection’s numismatic auction 7 saw strong results for high quality coins and medals. Especially Modern French and British Gold coins were in high demand. A rare 1921 five pounds and an extremely rare sovereign almost hit the 1 million euro mark.
Steve Album’s 40th auction in May was not full of six-figure items but with material collectors are looking for. You could find the finest known example of a 1932 riyal from Iraq, and a jacket money “cloth” from Taiwan. Again internet bidding was very strong.
The international coin trade is booming thanks to Covid. This affects the prices of coins of the German Empire, too. In Heidelberger Münzhandlung’s auction, pieces of outstanding quality achieved results that had previously been unheard of: 25,500 euros for 1 mark 1879 A and 17,750 euros for 5 marks “Eichbaum” 1930 E.
