In their postponed March actions, Cayón Numismática will offer more than 1,100 lots combined. Collectors will this time find an extremely important collection of Spanish medieval coins with hundreds of rare and scarce pieces. The auctions will take place as e-auctions on June 19 and 20.

The auction house has decided to donate 5% of the buyers fee (one point of the 20%) to charity in order to fight the pandemic.
Cayón will be selling a very important collection of Spanish medieval coins. The collection features more than 600 lots with hundreds of rare and scarce coins, including about 25 unique or unpublished pieces. The collection is focused on the 11th to 15th centuries. Now, in this auction (Subasta Extraordinaria I) the collection items will be offered as a large lot consisting of 594 coins (starting price: 300,000 euros), and 10 single lots.
