Chosen Coins at Solidus
In the current Auction 79, Solidus presents 660 selected coins from Antiquity to Modern Times, including some rarities and examples of outstanding quality.
The auction will be held as live auction on the auction platform AUEX on Tuesday, May 11th, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. CEST. Pre-bids can already be submitted.
Customers with a Sixbid account can also participate in the auction live via Sixbid.
The auction begins with coinage of the Western and Eastern Celts. There is a broad range of items from ancient Greece, e. g. from Magna Graecia, Thrace, Macedonia, the Greek motherland and Asia Minor. Many nice silver coins are on offer, mainly Di- and Tetradrachmas, but also beautiful smaller denominations like a Hemidrachma of Pharsalos (lot 69). A few nice bronze coins from Asia Minor are worth mentioning. There are also Parthian, Sasanid and Hephtalid issues.
A variety of provincial Roman Bronzes and Tetradrachms lead on to coins of the Roman world: mainly Denarii, Antoniniani and some bronzes from the Imperial period. A representative selection of Byzantine coins made of bronze and gold completes the section with ancient coins.
There is a considerable series of partly rare and high-quality coins from the Middle Ages. The broad spectrum includes coins from Germany and Europe. Among these many Venetian coins as well as issues from south-eastern Europe (Serbia, Bulgaria, Principalities of Wallachia and Moldova) and of the Crusaders from Greece and the Levant.
Modern coins are from Germany and the territories ruled by the Habsburgs. A very rare Polish Thaler from 1585 of Stephan Bathory from Nagybanya (Lot 626) is rather impressive. Other European countries are represented with coins from the 17th to 20th centuries. Among the medals offered are some nice religious pieces of the 18th century and a very rare gold medal commemorating an industrial exhibition (“Nordwestdeutsche Gewerbe- and Industrieausstellung 1890) in Bremen (Lot 585).
You can submit your bids before the auction – or during the live auction, where you can bid on the lots in real time, similar to a floor auction, and thus actively influence the auction process. The live auction starts Tuesday, 11th May 2021, at 4 p.m. CEST. You can access the auction via the platform AUEX.
The auction is also available on Sixbid.
