Attractive Gold and Silver Coins from Antiquity and the Early Modern Era at Solidus
Since the 22nd of September bids can be performed on the coins of online auction 8 by Solidus Numismatik on the auction platform EMAX. 838 lots have been selected for this auction:
Lot 38: Thraco-Scythian Dynasties. Sariakos (179-150 BC), Drachm.
The auction starts with some interesting West and East Celtic coins. It continues with Greek coins from Northern Greece (among others extremely rare coins from Thraco-Scythian rulers), Macedonia (including some tetradrachms and extremely fine gold staters), attractive silver coins from the Greek mainland (inclusive a considerable series of beautiful and partly very rare fractions) as well as samples of coinage from Asia Minor, among them electron coins of Kyzikos, Lesbos and Phokaia with some rarities.
These are followed by selected Roman Provincial coins from all parts of the empire. Special mention deserves a bronze from Apamea in Phrygia with an illustration of Noah’s Ark.
Lot 515: Probus (276-282 AD). Antoninianus, AD 277, Siscia.
Roman Republican and Imperial coins are represented with selected and partially extremely rare Denarii and Antoniniani of high quality and with nice portraits, furthermore with a few exceptional bronzes. A focus lies on the period of the soldier emperors.
Lot 567: Constans II. (641-668AD). Solidus, 659-661, Syracuse
Many attractive Late Roman and Byzantine coins are offered in bronze, silver and gold. Medieval coins comprise partially rare items from Germany and Europe, followed by crusader coins of Chios, Rhodes and Cyprus.
Lot 605: Bavaria. Maximilian I (1597-1651). 2 Ducats, 1642, Munich.
There are a lot of selected coins and medals of Early Modern Germany, Austria and Europe, among them several nice golden gulden and ducats, partly Hungarian items. Together with the Polish coins a respectable series of issues from Danzig deserves mention, some of them rare and in fine quality.
Finally an attractive series of Islamic coins with many rarities are on display, mainly coinage of the Ottoman Empire and the Seljuqs of Rum. The auction ends with valuable books of numismatic literature and single items as well as complete sets of interesting auction catalogues.
