Coins and medals from the Middle Ages and modern times as well as numismatic literature
After the weekend, from Monday, April 17, 2023 to Wednesday, April 19, 2023, starting at 1:30 pm each day, Künker will continue with coins from the ancient world, coins and medals from the Middle Ages and modern times, and numismatic literature.
The ancient coins cover a wide range of different areas, from Celtic coins to coins of the Greek world, coins of the Roman Empire to Byzantine coinage and Orientals. Of particular note is a beautiful lot of Roman coins from the Alexandria Mint (lot numbers 2152-2333), which precedes the other coins of the Roman Imperial period. Particularly noteworthy are a collection of Saxon coins with some rarity as well as ornate bracteates from the Romantic period (The Peter Fleige Collection Part 2), a series of Bavarian historical thalers, an interesting collection of Palatine coins, and a small collection of coins from East Frisia, also some rarities.
