Second auction of Solidus Numismatik with Pecunem
Pecunem announces that Auction 17, presented by Solidus Numismatik, is online now and will end Sunday, May 18, 2014. This is the second auction that Solidus has conducted on the Pecunem auction platform, and it features 500 selected lots of ancient and world coins.
The sale comprises ancient Celtic, Greek, Roman Provincial, Roman, Byzantine, Migration Period, and World coinage.
A series of gold staters of Philip II and Alexander III deserve special mention, as well as a number of Roman Provincial coins with interesting reverses.
In addition, you’ll find Roman Imperial denarii with exceptional portraits.
The medieval and world coins are highlighted by an extremely rare goldgulden of Ruprecht II of the Palatinate, a second known example of a half taler of Rudolf II from Kremnitz, and a presumably unpublished 1/6 ducat klippe of Regensburg.
As in its last auction at Pecunem.com, Auction 17 contains a selection of Islamic coins from the Ottoman empire with a number of rarities, such as the 40 Para of Mustafa II struck in Erzerum. Finally, the auction concludes with a small group of antiquities.
