In the current Auction 82, Solidus is presenting 699 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, 29 June 2021 from 4:00 p.m. CEST. Pre-bids can already be submitted.

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 Tetradrachms, but also beautiful smaller denominations and a few nice bronze coins like interesting issues of the Ptolemaic kingdom. There are also Parthian, Sasanid and Hephtalid issues. Among the Greek coins a rare and very well preserved octodrachm of the Orreskioi (Lot 1059) and an archaic Tetradrachm of Athens (Lot 1093) deserve special mention.
Roman Provinzial Bronzes and Tetradrachms lead on to coins of the Roman world: mainly Denarii, Antoniniani and some bronzes from the Imperial period and a small series of late ancient Siliquae. There are two aurei of Nero and Faustina Maior (lots 1442 and 1264).
A rare tremissis of Basilicus (Lot 1445) is worth mentioning. A representative selection of Byzantine coins made of bronze and gold completes the section with ancient coins.
There is a considerable series of coins from the Middle Ages. The broad spectrum includes coins from Germany and Europe. Among these Venetian coins as well as issues from south-eastern Europe and of the Crusaders from Greece and the Levant. A very rare silver bar of ancient Russia of the so-called Tartarian type deserves to be mentioned (Lot 1557).
Modern coins are from Germany and the territories ruled by the Habsburgs. Other European countries are represented with coins from the 17th to 20th centuries. Towards the end of the auction an interesting and attractive series of religious medals mainly of the 18th century is offered.
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, 29 June 2021, at 4 p.m. CEST.
