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.

Heritage Auctions, US-Dallas

Heritage Auctions offered the second portion of the legendary Simpson Collection of rare and important US coins in their November sale. An 1807 Draped Bust quarter that appeared only the second time in auction in over 100 years was sold for $630,000.

Cayón Numismática

Cayón’s Spanish copper collection and the gold e-auction sold both very well. E-auction 68 had a sell-through rate of almost 100% and increments of almost 300%. Especially the Spanish coins hit high prices.

Morton & Eden, GB-London

The 427th auction of Dr. Busso Peus Nachf. was a big success and proves again that top quality is in demand as never before. Especially the Graeculus Collection and rare modern coins went high in price.
