ICE presents the Auction VIII holding on Friday 20th February 2015 at 2.00 PM (UK Time), in conjunction with the Irish International Coin Fair.
Lot 6: Cilicia, Choice EF, Estimate: 2000/3000 euro.
The auction features a set of 387 lots selected with taste and precision. The sale begins with a series of Greek Coins, including a lovely stater of the Satrap Balakros from Tarsos.
Lot 58: Egypt, Medal, AU, Estimate: 3000/5000 euro.
Ancient Coins are followed by a selection of World Coins and Medals with, in particular, a series of rare jetons from Algeria (lots 30-35), a series of Coins and Medals from Egypt (lots 54-71) including a rare and nice medal designed by Stern about the Tribute of the European Nations.
Lot 139: France, Set of Napoleon’s Medals in an original cabinet, AU to UNC, Estimate: 20 000/30 000 euro.
French Coins and Medals take up a large space in this auction (lots 76-254) and the highlight of this selection is the exceptional set of Napoleon’s Medals in an original cabinet. The ornamented cabinet contains 135 different Bronze Medals, untouched for most of them and uncirculated, in different sizes and relating the reign of Napoleon I (1804-1814). It’s probably the first time that an original cabinet with all its medals is on sale in an international numismatic auction!
Lots can be viewed the 20th February 2015 from 10 am to 12 in the Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin, Pembroke Room.
