Künker, D-Osnabrück

13.6 million euros: that’s the total result of Künker’s Fall Auction Sales. This is almost twice the estimate of about 7 million euros. A remarkable result that was achieved thanks to numerous prices in the six-digit range, including a new record for a Prussian coin!


In its eLive Premium Auction 356, Künker auctions off the W. Risse Collection with medals entitled “Nuditas in nummis – Nude and Eros in Numismatics”. The pieces cover the time span from the Renaissance to modern times.

Nudes at the Time of the French Third Republic

Medals reflect contemporary history, as demonstrated by the W. Risse Collection ‘Nuditas in nummis’. Johannes Nollé reveals the connection between the art of the 19th century and the plaques produced by French medallists from 1870 to 1940.


478 lots of mostly German coins of the 19th and 20th centuries of outstanding quality – that is the offer of Künker’s eLive Premium Auction 355 taking place on 12 October 2021 starting at 6 p.m.
