Selected Saxon Coins and Medals
Solidus Premium Auction 42 is online since May 17th. It contains 101 selected Saxon coins and medals, among them some outstanding rarities. The auction will be held as a live auction on the AUEX auction platform on Sunday, 2 June 2019 from 17:00 CEST. Pre-bids can already be submitted.
The auction begins with coins from the reign of Johann Georg I, including complete series of rare coinages commemorating the Vicariate in 1612 and 1619 as well as his death in 1656. Besides that an extremely fine Ducat from 1636 and a double Taler from 1635 are worth mentioning. In addition many above-average beautiful Talers and smaller denominations are offered.
The next part contains coins from the reign of Johann Georg II, which are represented by an impressive series of coinages commemorating the Vicariate in 1657, among them an extremely rare 1/2 Taler coined on a smaller but much thicker flan of an 1/8 Taler.
The auction continues with coins from the reign of Johann Georg III. A commemorative 2/3 Taler on the death of the electoral mother and a comprehensive series of coinages commemorating his death in 1691 deserve mention.
There are furthermore several coins from the reign of Johann Georg IV, including a series of coinages commemorating his death in 1694. A splendid specimen of the extremely rare Taler (1694 EPH) minted in Leipzig as well as a golden strike made of the die of a Pfennig worth 1/8 Ducats are also from this year.
This selection is characterised by rare coins and medals from the time of the German Empire, including several magnificent specimens and two extremely rare gold medals awarded by the University of Leipzig weighing 14 Ducats from the years 1886 (Albert) and 1910 (Friedrich August III), of which only one was awarded each year.
You can place your maximum bids before the auction – or during the live auction, during which you can bid on the lots in real time and actively influence the auction process, similar to a floor auction. The Live Auction starts on Sunday, 2 June 2019, at 17.00 CEST.
The coins can be viewed at the office of Solidus Numismatik prior to the auction (only by appointment).
