Dix Noonan Webb

An extremely fine and rare 50 Shilling of Oliver Cromwell sold for £471,200 in a Dix Noonan Webb auction in January. This is a world record price for a Cromwellian coin which was caused by its quality and its rarity: only 12 specimens are believed to exist.

CNG’s Triton XXIV sale offered a choice selection of the most famous ancient coins like a Pantikapaion stater and an EID MAR denarius. However, the most expensive coin was another one.

Heidelberger Münzhandlung

Top prices for Nuremberg talers, the most expensive Nuremberg pfennig and the most expensive silver coin of the Kingdom of Westphalia: there were a lot of surprises in Heidelberger Münzhandlung’s auction 80, even though the records that are currently being achieved in the coin trade can almost no longer be called a surprise.
